Holocaust Martyrs’ and Heroes’ Remembrance Day 2020

Rescue by Jews during the Holocaust: Solidarity in a Disintegrating World

Prof. Ben Zion Dinur, Yad Vashem, 1956: “If we wish to live and to bequeath life to our offspring, if we believe that we are to pave the way to the future, then we must first of all not forget.”

The state ceremony marking the start of Holocaust Martyrs’ and Heroes’ Remembrance Day in Israel was broadcast on Monday night, 20 April 2020. Due to restrictions mandated by Israel’s Health Ministry, the ceremony was recorded in advance and includes messages from the President and Prime Minister of the State of Israel, the stories of the six torchlighters, musical interludes, prayers from the chief rabbis and a cantor, and a message delivered on behalf of the survivors.
