Holocaust Remembrance Day

Israel became a nation after the horrors done to the Jewish people during the Holocaust.

Holocaust Remembrance Day is yearly reminder that this type of genocide against the Jewish people should never happen again. In Israel, on Holocaust Remembrance Day a siren is blown for 2 minutes throughout the country, and everything comes to a standstill, including all traffic.

It is an amazing thing to experience.
