Israel halts in memory of 6 million Jews killed in Holocaust, kept two minutes silent

Israel halts in memory of 6 million Jews killed in Holocaust, kept two minutes silent

In memory of the 60 million Jews killed in the Holocaust, Israel on Thursday kept a two-minute silence. Public buses and cars stopped on roads and highways for two minutes at 10 am and pedestrians stood in memory of those killed in the Genocide. In Hebrew this day is called 'Yom hashah'. This is one of the most 'disappointing' days in the Israeli calendar. The day marks the anniversary of the 1943 'Warsaw Ghetto Rebellion', which was the most important act of Jewish resistance against Nazi Germany during the Holocaust.

The Holocaust is a major element of Israel's public consciousness. Israel was established in 1948, three years after the end of World War II. This country came into existence as a refuge for Jews around the world, who survived and lost their families.

900 people killed in Corona last year
The restaurant and other entertainment venues were closed after it started on Wednesday evening. Less than 180,000 Holocaust victims remain in Israel. President Holwen Rivlin said in an address during an opening ceremony at the World Holocaust Remembrance Center, Yad Washem, on Wednesday that the Corona virus killed 900 survivors last year.

He said that he survived 'death camps', immigrant ships and internment camps but fought the final battle of his life with isolations, masks and gloves but eventually broke away from his family. Daily ceremonies held in schools, public institutions and military bases began with sirens.

There will be more events than last year
This year Yom Haishah's programs were organized under the title 'Until the Very Last Jew: Eighty Years Since the Onset of Mass Annihilation'. This title was fixed by Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum in Jerusalem. More public events will be organized this year than in 2020. Last year, due to Corona, the country's Health Ministry banned many events. Last time ceremonies were held online.

However, this year too many programs have been canceled due to Corona rescue. According to The Times of Israel, on Thursday, the topic of medical resistance during the Holocaust, the legacy of Nazi medicine and what the Holocaust can teach us about the ethics of care was discussed between medical professionals and researchers.

CEO of Pfizer will be involved
This year the program will be held at 3 pm local time, in which special tribute will be paid to the doctors and heroes of the Holocaust. It will include Holocaust victim's son and Pfizer CEO Albert Borla, and Anthony Fauci, the chief medical advisor to US President Joe Biden.
