Yom Hashoah, Never forget

A day to remember to the victims of the Holocaust: we will never forget.

Each year, in Israel and around the world, a tribute was paid on Yom HaShoah to the 6 million Jews who died during the Second World War, victims of the Nazis and their collaborators.

On this occasion, the sirens sound in the country, urging Israelis to gather in silence for a minute. Suddenly everything stops even one descends car, one gathers in silence for a minute, and we think of the victim.

Yom HaShoah starts Wednesday and ends Thursday at nughtfall.

Wednesday, May, 1 everything will be close at 6pm (restaurants, shops…)

At 10:00 am on Thusday, May 2, a siren will sound throughout the country. If you are driving, keep in mind that traffic will also come to a stop, and drivers and passengers will stand at attention next to their vehicles until the siren finishes.

Don’t forget to light a candle that will burn for 24 hours at the memory of the 6 million victims of the Holocaust.

Yom HaZikaron laShoah ve-laG’vurah (יום הזיכרון לשואה ולגבורה; “Holocaust and Heroism Remembrance Day”), known colloquially in Israel and abroad as Yom HaShoah (יום השואה) and in English as Holocaust Remembrance Day, or Holocaust Day, is observed as Israel’s day of commemoration for the approximately six million Jews and five million others who perished in the Holocaust as a result of the actions carried out by Nazi Germany and its accessories, and for the Jewish resistance in that period. In Israel, it is a national memorial day and public holiday. It was inaugurated on 1953, anchored by a law signed by the Prime Minister of Israel David Ben-Gurion and the President of Israel Yitzhak Ben-Zvi. It is held on the 27th of Nisan (April/May), unless the 27th would be adjacent to Shabbat, in which case the date is shifted by a day.
