The Holocaust Resource Center of Buffalo offers its deepest condolences to the families of the victims of the horrific and heartbreaking attack at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh as well as thoughts and prayers to the injured and all those affected by this tragedy including the courageous first responders. It is more important than ever that we remain ever vigilant, that we continue educating our community about tolerance and respect and that we never forget the lessons of the Holocaust. We stand with our brothers and sisters in Pittsburgh.
