Download PDF for this date

Men, women and children in all parts of Israel marked today the national day in memory of the fighters of the Warsaw Ghetto and the six million European Jews martyred by the Nazis. A ceremony here, at the foot of Mt. Herzl, drew thousands who participated in an outdoor service for the dead. President Isaac Ben Zvi joined Chief Rabbis Isaac Herzog and Isaac Nissim at the services.
