Israel honors Holocaust Memorial Day

It's time now for this year's Holocaust Memorial:
As the sun begins to set this evening, ushering in Israel's Holocaust Remembrance Day, the atmosphere will change. Slowly, the quotidian routine will give way to reflection as businesses and leisure venues close to allow the nation to honor the memory of the 6 million Jews murdered in the Holocaust.

The official events will start at 8 p.m. with the main ceremony at Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial in Jerusalem, at which President Reuven Rivlin and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu are scheduled to speak. Yad Vashem Chairman Avner Shalev will light the memorial flame, and Holocaust survivor Esther Meron will speak in the name of all the survivors.

During the ceremony, six other survivors will light six torches, each one representing 1 million victims: Moshe Ha-Elion, Moshe Jakubowitz, Jeannine Sebbane-Bouhanna, Moshe Porat, Max Privler, and Elka Reines-Abramovitz.

Update: also see this article about why it's up to 3rd generation descendants of survivors to record their biographies now.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
