Wednesday 11 April (27 Nisan), Yom HaShoah begins.
On this day the Jewish people and all people with a conscience remember the 6,000,000 who were herded as sheep to the slaughter.
To this day, 73 years later, while the world’s Jewish population is growing, it still has not reached the number of Jews alive before the Shoah.
Yom HaShoah is on the 27th of Nisan on the Hebrew Calendar, and is the day for the Jewish community to reflect and remember what has befallen us. It is different from Holocaust Remembrance Day, on January 27th, which is the international commemoration.
There are few if any universally recognized customs for this day. Except. Remember.
