Governor Jared Polis of Colorado has signed into law HB-1336, the Holocaust and Genocide Education in Public Schools bill.

Sponsored in the House by Reps. Emily Sirota (D-9) and Dafna Michaelson Jenet (D-30), and in the Senate by Sens. Stephen Fenberg (D-18) and Dennis Hisey (R-2), the bill was pushed forward by local Denver survivor Fanny Starr, her family, former legislators and the Armenian community.

Colorado is now the 14th state in the United States to mandate Holocaust education.
