Israel stannade upp och hedrade Förintelsens offer

Klockan 10 idag på morgonen stannade Israel upp för att minnas Förintelsens offer.

Watch: Israel comes to a standstill to mark Holocaust Remembrance Day 
 "As siren blares, cars stop and the country observes a moment of silence for two minutes to remember the 6 million Jews who perished in the Holocaust."

Running out of time  (ledare Jerusalem Post)
Most critically, we are running out of time with regard to Holocaust education. Nothing compares to direct contact with a person who actually survived the horrors of the Shoah.

 Since last Holocaust Remembrance Day, about 13,000 Holocaust survivors in Israel have died, an average of more than 1,000 a month. In all, there are an estimated 193,000 Holocaust survivors still living in the country. Their average age is 85 years old.
