New York Governor Kathy Hochul signed legislation to support Holocaust survivors and Holocaust education in the state. Hochul signed three pieces of legislation at the Museum of Jewish Heritage in New York City.
The first ensures New York public schools carry out proper Holocaust education. The second requires museums to label art that was stolen from Jews by the Nazis. And the third mandates the Department of Financial Services disclose banks that voluntarily waive fees for Holocaust reparation payments.
