Exploiting Holocaust Remembrance Day

by Stephen Lendman

Israel unjustifiably promotes "unique Jewish suffering."

Yom HaShoah/Holocaust Remembrance Day is commemorated annually. It runs from sundown April 7 to sunset April 8. This year's theme is "Defiance and Rebellion during the Holocaust: 70 years Since the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising."

Sunday night Warsaw and Jerusalem ceremonies included government officials, dignitaries and holocaust survivors.

At 10AM Monday morning, a two-minute siren echoed across Israel. It marked the beginning of other ceremonies that followed.

Yad Vashem is Israel's official holocaust memorial. It's located on Mount Herzl's western slope on the Mount of Remembrance in Jerusalem. Its complex includes the Holocaust History Museum. It's second only to the Western Wall as Israel's most visited site.

A wreath-laying ceremony was held there. Holocaust victim names were publicly recited all day. Much more takes place annually.
