Yom HaShoah commemorated by Mark Podwal

Yom HaShoah (יום השואה) in English known as Holocaust Remembrance Day starts April 11 at sundown and ends 24 hours later.

The full name of the day commemorating the victims of the Holocaust is “Yom Hashoah Ve-Hagevurah“– literally the “Day of (Remembrance of) the Holocaust and the Heroism.” It is marked on the 27th day in the month of Nisan — a week after the seventh day of Passover, and a week before Yom Hazikaron (Memorial Day for Israel’s fallen soldiers).

We are marking this day with artist Mark Podwal’s poignant “Auschwitz” drawing.
