At 10 a.m. on Thursday morning, Israel came to a standstill as sirens blared throughout the country to commemorate the 6 million Jewish victims of the Nazi regime. During the two minute siren traffic came to a standstill and people stopped working to remember the Holocaust.



The siren will be followed by a wreath-laying ceremony at Yad Vashem’s Warsaw Ghetto Square attended by President Reuven Rivlin, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and other senior governmental, military, and political figures.

Afterward, at the Hall of Remembrance, a ceremonial reading of the names of Holocaust victims will take place.
