The Georgia Commission on the Holocaust is a secular, non-partisan state-agency administratively attached to the Secretary of State.
The Commission was established by Executive Order by Joe Frank Harris in 1986. Governor Zell Miller re-established the Commission upon taking office and charged it with creating education programs for the citizens. Then in 1998 by act of the Georgia General Assembly the Commission became a permanent State Agency.
The Commission consists of fifteen members appointed equally by the Governor, Lt. Governor and Speaker of the House.
