Yom HaShoah – Holocaust Day April 19, 2012

Yom Ha’Shoah April 19, 2012

Yom HaZikaron laShoah – “Holocaust and Heroism Remembrance Day.”

“Those that fail to learn from history, are doomed to repeat it”
– Winston Churchill

It is held every year on the 27th of Nisan in the Jewish calendar, unless the 27th would be adjacent to Shabbat, in which case the date is shifted by a day.

Schedule 27 Nisan:
2012: 19 April
2013: 7 April
2014: 27 April
2015: 16 April

Known in Israel and abroad as Yom HaShoah (יום השואה) and in English as Holocaust Remembrance Day, or Holocaust Day, is observed as Israel’s day of commemoration for the approximately six million Jews who perished in the Holocaust as a result of the actions carried out by Nazi Germany and its accessories, and for the Jewish resistance in that period.

In Israel, it is a national memorial day and public holiday. It was inaugurated on 1953, anchored by a law signed by the Prime Minister of Israel David Ben-Gurion and the President of Israel Yitzhak Ben-Zvi.
