On 27 Nisan in the Hebrew calendar, which falls roughly between the nights of April 7th and 8th in the Gregorian calendar, Yom HaShoah is observed in the state of Israel. It is the commemoration day for the hundreds, thousands, millions of Jews (although I take it to also respect other people, such as Poles) that died during the Shoah (Holocaust); the Hebrew “Yom HaShoah” is composed of
“yom יום” - day
“ha ה” - the
“shoah שואה” - holocaust
Let us take a moment to respect those who lived through this horrible time and have fallen, and strive to be better as a species.
יהי שלום על נפשם.
It is important to remember such things, because if we do not, one day humanity will be so desperate as to do these sorts of things again.
