Holocaust Remembrance Day Traffic Stop

Robert Emslie May 12, 2011 In General

From the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum:

The internationally recognized date comes from the Hebrew calendar and corresponds to the 27th day of Nisan on that calendar. It marks the anniversary of the Warsaw ghetto uprising. In Hebrew, Holocaust Remembrance Day is called Yom Hashoah. When the actual date of Yom Hashoah falls on a Friday, the state of Israel observes Yom Hashoah on the preceding Thursday. When it falls on a Sunday, Yom Hashoah is observed on the following Monday.

In Israel, on Holocaust Remembrance Day, a mournful siren’s wail calls all for a moment of silence. This video, of one of Israel’s busiest freeways, demonstrates the reverence of those who will not let the knowledge of the world’s worst atrocities fade, lest they one day are repeated.

Imagine if America did something similar on each September 11th? Yeah, right.

    An unnecessary piece of snark.

    Pretty remarkable when the only thing visibly moving was a bird.

    Also I wonder how much shit that truck driver with the crane section is going to get when his boss/coworkers see this video.

    Very cool.

  4. This is incredible. It's terrible that we should have to pause to remember such a tragedy and inspiring that such a number of people make a point to in the typical fast-paced modern day.
