On Yom Hashoah, Holocaust Memorial Day, an alarm goes off throughout Israel. People stop whatever it is they are doing and stand in silence for a moment in order to commemorate the murder of 6 million Jews by the Nazis. The only people you will see moving in this video is a photographer, because the 5th estate stops for no one, and a Haredi Jew. The Haredim don’t really recognize Holocaust Memorial Day as a holy day. Instead, they commemorate the memory of all Jewish martyrs on either the 9th day of the month of Av (Tisha B’Av) or on the 10th day of the month of Tevet (Asarah B’Tevet), depending on which of our commenters you hold by.
