Event Time and Date
April 24th, 2017, marks the 64th anniversary of Yom Hashoah, also known as Israel Holocaust Remembrance Day. In Israel, places of public entertainment are closed by law, Israeli television airs Holocaust documentaries and Holocaust-related talk shows,and flags on public buildings are flown at half mast. At 10:00 a.m., an air raid siren sounds throughout the entire country and Israelis observe two minutes of solemn reflection. Almost everyone stops what they are doing, including motorists who stop their cars in the middle of the road, standing beside their vehicles in silence as the siren is sounded.
