*Yom HaShoah V’Hagvurah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) was designated in 1959 by the State of Israel. It falls on the 27th day of the Jewish month of Nissan, a date chosen to coincide with the anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. Yom HaShoah is observed by Jewish communities around the world as a way to commemorate the Jewish victims of the Holocaust, who were brutally murdered under National Socialist rule.
