Holocaust Memorial Day
to all orangemane members who are Jewish - I know I will never forget.
The full name of the day commemorating the victims of the Holocaust is “Yom Hashoah Ve-Hagevurah”— in Hebrew literally translated as the "Day of (remembrance of) the Holocaust and the Heroism." It is marked on the 27th day in the month of Nisan — a week after the end of the Passover holiday and a week before Yom Hazikaron (Memorial Day for Israel's fallen soldiers). It marks the anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising.
Holocaust Remembrance Day (Yom HaShoah) has begun this evening in Israel. Tonight and tomorrow, we will remember 6 million Jews, who perished in the Holocaust by Nazi Germany. Tomorrow at 10:00 AM (Israel time zone), sirens will be sounded throughout Israel for two minutes. During this time, people cease from action and stand at attention.
