Holocaust Martyrs and Heroes Remembrance Day

The sirens wailed for two minutes, the entire country came to a standstill. Cars stopped in the middle of the road, people stood, and took time to remember the martyrs and heroes.



Holocaust Martyrs and Heroes Remembrance Day was set to mark the anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising and has been traditionally commemorated around the world.

The Tenth of Tevet, (this year January 6) was set by the Chief Rabbinate of Israel as the day for the recital of the Kaddish prayer for those murdered during the Holocaust whose date of death is not known.

Good to see you back!
Sounds like a LOT better way to use 1MAY than the old Communist commemorative.
