Yom HaShoah Commemoration

Yom HaShoah is also known as Holocaust Remembrance Day. "Shoah," which means catastrophe or utter destruction in Hebrew, refers to the atrocities that were committed against the Jewish people during World War II. This is a memorial day for those who died in the Shoah.

In 2015, the Holocaust, Genocide, and Human Rights Project marked its 25th annual Yom HaShoah Commemoration and the 70th anniversary of the Liberation of Auschwitz.
