Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Rememberance Day)

Yom HaShoah is Israel's Holocaust Rememberance Day, falling on the date in the Jewish calendar (the 27th of Nissan) that reflects the day of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. This day is meant to remember all of those who perished during the Holocaust, who survived it, and all those who helped save the people afflicted by the terrors of the Holocaust.
