Yom HaShoah / יום השואה
Yom HaZikaron laShoah ve-laG'vurah (יום הזיכרון לשואה ולגבורה; "Holocaust and Heroism Remembrance Day"), known colloquially in Israel and abroad as Yom HaShoah (יום השואה) and in English as Holocaust Remembrance Day, or Holocaust Day, is observed as Israel's day of commemoration for the approximately six million Jews and five million others who perished in the Holocaust as a result of the actions carried out by Nazi Germany and its accessories, and for the Jewish resistance in that period. In Israel, it is a national memorial day and public holiday. It was inaugurated on 1953, anchored by a law signed by the Prime Minister of Israel David Ben-Gurion and the President of Israel Yitzhak Ben-Zvi. It is held on the 27th of Nisan (April/May), unless the 27th would be adjacent to Shabbat, in which case the date is shifted by a day.

Yom HaShoah begins at sundown on Wed, 04 May 2016.

All you passionate defenders of zionism and its crimes against Hashem, the Torah and Klal Yisroel should take the time and read Reb Moshe Shonfeld's expose on the behaviour of the zionist leadership during WW2.

Here are a few lines from the Foreword

Last year, a new printing of the book, “Yaldei Teheran Maashimim” (“The Teheran Children Accuse”), appeared.

It was meant especially for Bnei Torah, and was distributed in yeshivos and kollelim. That frightening manuscript enumerates what the Zionist movement can do to the spirit of our people. The booklet which we are publishing here, “Serufay. Ha Kivshbnim Maashimim” (“The Holocaust Victims Accuse”), serves as an attempt to show, by means of testimonies., documents and reports, how Zionism and its high-level organizations brought a catastrophe upon our people during the era of the Nazi holocaust. If the Yaldei Teheran affair serves as an example of the Implications of, “greater is the (sins of) one who causes another to sin than the (sins of) one who kills another”, analagous to destroying the soul and leaving the body, then what the heads of the Zionist movement did to the European Jews during World War II cannot be defined except as the one who actually "does" the killing.

“Serufay Ha Kivshonim Maashimim” is a collection of nine essays which were printed in “Digleinu” in the years 1961—64 under the heading, “Ani Maashim - Min HaMaitzar” (I Accuse - From the Depths”). The fruit of the pen of Reb. Moshe Shonfeld, it constitutes a continuation of the revelations of the gaon and tzaddik, Rabbi Michael Ber Weissmandel, who devoted his life to saving his brothers, and endlessly alerted the Jewish world.

But there was no one listening to him. Several paragraphs in corporated into the first nine essays and the last essay in its entirety are being published here for the first time.
