The scene gets me every time. The siren goes off and everyone stops (well everyone except for the journalists and pigeons). The buses stop. Cars stop. All you hear is the siren and for one moment, wherever you are, the stillness allows you to focus on and commemorate those that were consumed in the fire of the Shoah. Words fail me. They always do.
