Yom HaShoah, which loosely means "Day of The Catastrophe" in Hebrew, is Holocaust Remembrance Day. It was officially established as a holiday by the Israeli government in the 1950s. In the United States, Holocaust Remembrance Day was first observed in 1979. It is now a day of commemoration for people worldwide.

“Six million of our people live on in our hearts. We are their eyes that remember. We are their voice that cries out. The dreadful scenes flow from their dead eyes to our open ones. And those scenes will be remembered exactly as they happened.”

— Shimon Peres, former prime minister of Israel
