Today has been International Holocaust Remembrance Day. There is also another day that is known as Holocaust Remembrance Day that is remembered later in the year. This can be a bit confusing and I have actually had to correct a few of my old posts as I better understand this.
I took some time today to remember my trips to visit Buchenwald and also several holocaust memorials in Germany and Israel.
This year Yom HaShoah will be observed on April 11. Yom HaShoah was first observed in 1951 and was established by law in 1959 as Yom Hazikaron laShoah ve-laG’vurah or Holocaust and Heroism Remembrance Day.
I hope and pray that we have learned from our past so that it will not be repeated.
