Israel observes Holocaust remembrance

by ian

Israel observed Holocaust Remembrance Day yesterday.

The ceremony began in Jerusalem where sirens blared for two minutes, commemorating the atrocity that killed 6 million Jews in Nazi Germany. The solemn event also happened against the backdrop of the more than 100 Jews whom Hamas kidnapped during the October 7 attacks.

Meanwhile, in Poland, the commemoration at the Auschwitz concentration camp was overshadowed by pro-Hamas agitators.

Dr. Shmuel Rosenman, chairman of the March of the Living, the organization that put on the event said, “This year, more than ever, we understand why preserving the memory of the Holocaust is still essential. Fighting against the continuous and overwhelming wave of antisemitism, makes the March of the Living’s mission to remember more important and more relevant than ever.”
