24 April: Yom Ha’Shoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) is a day set aside to remember the six million Jews murdered during the Holocaust or Shoah. Many Australians with Jewish ties or heritage observe Yom Ha’Shoah. It commemorates the lives and heroism of Jewish people who died in the Holocaust between 1933 and 1945.
The Holocaust was a colossal crime. No-one can deny the evidence that it happened. By remembering the victims and honouring the courage of the survivors and those who assisted and liberated them, Christians remember. A memorial service for victims of the Holocaust will be held at Sion College, Box Hill on Tuesday May 3, 2016
