Yom HaShoah Ve-Hagevurah, often shortened to Yom HaShoah, is a day of remembrance observed globally by the Jewish people. In English, it is known as Holocaust Remembrance Day. The solemn occasion often begins with an official state ceremony in Yad Vashem (Israel’s official memorial to the victims of the Holocaust) in Jerusalem. This ceremony is usually live-streamed on YouTube, with translations available in English and a few other languages.  Throughout the world, various other events honor this day.
