Holocaust Survivor Sounds Sirens on Holocaust Remembrance Day

In this emotional video, an elderly Holocaust survivor sounds the sirens to begin the moment of silence in Israel for Holocaust Remembrance Day.

During Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) sirens are sounded throughout Israel indicating a moment of silence. Traffics stops on the streets. People stand still wherever they are and we all reflect.

This year, Yuli Zalmonovitch was chosen to sound the siren, bringing extra meaning to the moment because she managed to survive the Holocaust. Although the video is not in English, words aren’t need to understand the special meaning you’re about to see. The look on Yuli’s face is enough.
