با اینکه بزرگترین اسیبها در زمان جنگ دوم جهانی توسط نازیهای المانی که نژاد خود را نسبت به نژاد دیگر ملتها به ویژه یهودیان اروپا برتر میدانستند و به این دلیل « ذلیلانه » از هر ۳ یهودی اروپائی ۲ نفر به دست انان به قربانگاه های « اشویتس، داخائو و غیره فرستاده شدند تا از به قتل رساندن بچه های شیرخواره گرفته تا سالمندان انان رقم کشتار دسته جمعی را به ۶ میلیون برسانند و ان را به بزرگترین « نسل کشی » که تاکنون تاریخ به یاد دارد تبدیل سازند ولی با این وجود اسیب دیدگانی از جانب انان مانند « کولیها ، مغولها ، همجنس گرایان ، کمونیستها ، دگر انیشان و غیره » نیز وجود داشته اند که ما یهودیان اسیب دیده و انسانهای خوب دیگر در جهان نمیتوانیم مشقتهائي نیز که بر انان وارد شده را فراموش کنیم ادامه

Holocaust Remembrance Day has been set aside for remembering victims of the Holocaust and for reminding to Americans, European nations and other countries of united nations who are only after their own personal interest what can bring up a regime like islamic republic of iran to threat the world when bigotry, hatred and indifference are at work in their houses.
Holocaust Remembrance Day has been set aside for remembering victims of the Holocaust and for reminding to Americans, European nations and other countries of united nations who are only after their own personal interest what can bring up a regime like islamic republic of iran to threat the world when bigotry, hatred and indifference are at work in their own backyards.
The United States Holocaust Memorial Council, created by act of Congress in 1980, was mandated to lead the nation in civic commemorations and to encourage appropriate remembrance observances throughout the country. Observances and remembrance activities can occur during the week of remembrance that runs from the Sunday before through the Sunday after the actual date. This year, Holocaust Remembrance Day is Thursday. The theme is “Choosing to Act: Stories of Rescue.”
While there are obvious religious aspects, it is not a religious observance. The internationally-recognized date comes from the Hebrew calendar and corresponds to the 27th day of Nisan. That is the day which Israel commemorates the victims of the Holocaust.
In Hebrew, Holocaust Remembrance Day is called
“They came first for the communists and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist. Then they came for the Jews and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew. They came for the Catholics and I didn’t speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me and by that time no one was left to speak up.” — Poem by pastor Martin Niemoeller, a Nazi victim

Yom Hashoah Ve Hagvurah
יום השואה והגבורה
Holocaust Remembrance Day
Why this day?
Jewish history is long and filled with many stories
of slavery and freedom, sorrow
and joy, persecution and redemption. For Jews,
their history, their family, and
their relationship with God have shaped their
religion and their identity. The
Hebrew calendar is filled with varied holidays that
incorporate and reiterate the
history and tradition of the Jewish people.
After the horrors of the Holocaust, Jews wanted a
day to memorialize this tragedy.
But what day? The Holocaust spanned years
with suffering and death spread
throughout these years of terror. No one day stood
out as representative of this destruction
- The tenth of Tevet was proffered. This day
- is Asarah B'Tevet and marks the
- beginning of the siege of Jerusalem. But this day holds
- no direct relation or tie to the Holocaust.
- The Zionists in Israel, many of whom had
- fought in the ghettos or as
- partisans, wanted to commemorate the beginning
- of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising - April 19, 1943
- Nissan - the day before Passover, a very important
- and happy holiday Orthodox Jews objected to this date.
For two years, the date was debated. Finally, in 1950,
compromises and bargaining began
The 27th of Nissan was chosen, which falls beyond
Passover but within the
time span of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. Orthodox
Jews still did not like this date
because it was a day of mourning within the
traditionally happy month of Nissan.
As a final effort to compromise, it was decided that
if the 27th of Nissan would
affect Shabbat (fall on Friday or Saturday), then it
would be moved.If the 27th of
Nissan falls on a Friday, Holocaust Remembrance Day
is moved to the preceding
Thursday. If the 27th of Nissan falls on a Sunday,
then Holocaust Remembrance
Day is moved to the following Monday.
On April 12, 1951, the Knesset (Israel's parliament)
proclaimed Yom Hashoah
U'Mered HaGetaot (Holocaust and Ghetto Revolt
Remembrance Day) to be the
27th of Nissan. The name later became known as
Yom Hashoah Ve Hagevurah
(Devastation and Heroism Day) and even later
simplified to Yom Hashoah.
How is it observed?
Since Yom Hashoah is a relatively new holiday,
there are no set rules or rituals.
What kind of ritual could represent the Holocaust?
There are various beliefs about what is and is not
appropriate on this day - and
many of them are conflicting. In general, Yom Hashoah
has been observed with
candlelighting, speakers, poems, prayers, and singing.
Often, six candles are
lighted to represent the six million.
Holocaust survivors speak about their
experiences or share in the readings.
Some ceremonies have people read from the
Book of Names for certain lengths of time in an effort
to remember those that died
and to give an understanding of the huge number of victims.
Sometimes these ceremonies are
held in a cemetery or near a Holocaust memorial
In Israel, the Knesset made Yom Hashoah a national
public holiday in 1959 and in
1961 a law was passed that closed all public entertainment
on Yom Hashoah. At
ten in the morning, a siren is sounded where everyone
stops what they are doing,
pull over in their cars, and stand in remembrance.
In whatever form you observe Yom Hashoah,
the memory of the Jewish victims
will live on
