Yom Ha'Shoah - Holocaust Remembrance

On Yom Ha'Shoah, we remember the six million Jews killed by the Nazis and their collaborators.

The Nazi killing machine targeted Jews and others whom the Nazis considered racially inferior.  They used concentration camps and slave labour to work and starve Jews to death, mobile killing squads, and finally extermination camps.

By the end of the war, the Nazis had killed nearly 2 of every 3 Jews living in Europe.  

On Yom Ha'Shoah, we memoralise those who perished, and are reminded to actively fight all demonisation, violence, and devaluation of  human life.
