Yom HaShoah, in history and current day Israel

Yom HaShoah, also known as Holocaust Remembrance Day, is Israel's day of memorial for those killed during the Holocaust and those who were part of the resistance.

At 10:00 am on Yom HaShoah, sirens are sounded throughout Israel for two minutes. During this time, people cease from action and stand at attention; cars stop, even on the highways; and the whole country comes to a standstill as people pay silent tribute to the dead.

Why I wear a white poppy

My friend, you would not tell with such high zest
To children ardent for some desperate glory,
The old Lie: Dulce et decorum est
Pro patria mori.

"Everything was fine two hours ago and now nothing was fine and might not ever be."

"Every man for himself. I was irrationally convinced that if one particle of that sinister cloud managed to touch me I would die."
