On April 16, 2018 Assemblymember Richard Bloom (D-Santa Monica) honored long-time Beverly Hills optometrist and current Woodland Hills resident, Henry Oster, at the State Capitol as part of the California State Assembly’s 15th Annual Holocaust Remembrance Ceremony.

“Part of today’s ceremony was about remembering the dark days of the Holocaust and the depravity and evil of that time.  But remembering the darkness of that time is not the only reason we are here,” said Bloom.  “Survivors went on with their lives, raised families, started businesses, and created a state for the Jewish people.  So while we remember the tragedy, we are also reminded of the resilience, the triumph, and the human spirit.”
