Israel prepares to mark Holocaust Remembrance Day


My Comment:  God Bless Israel, give peace to the survivors, and help us always to remember the sacrifices made.

On Sunday night Israelis will start commemorating Holocaust Martyrs’ and Heroes’ Remembrance Day, during which schools, government offices, the IDF and local municipalities will hold ceremonies to honor those murdered by the Nazis and their helpers.

Events will start at 8 p.m., when the national flag will be lowered to half mast. The main ceremony will take place at the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial, with President Shimon Peres and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in attendance. Six Holocaust survivors will light memorial torches in memory of the 6 million Jews who were murdered.
