Yom HaShoah — Holocaust Memorial Day

Beginning today at sundown is Holocaust Memorial Day.  All regular television programming ceases and there are either stations shut down or they broadcast special Holocaust programs.  Tomorrow morning, at 10:00 am, a siren will sound for 2 minutes throughout the country for 2 minutes of silence.  During this time, drivers in towns and on highways will stop their cars, get out, and stand next to them in memory of the 6,000,000 Jewish people killed in the Holocaust.  People in stores and cafes will stand still for this time also.  It is very moving to see this and to participate in it.

We must never forget!
