Yad Vashem -Broadcasting the State Opening Rally to commemorate Holocaust Remembrance Day
State Assembly to commemorate Remembrance will air tomorrow on Monday, 04/20/2020 at 20:00. The assembly was filmed in advance without a crowd in the Warsaw ghetto square at Yad Vashem because of the Ministry of Health’s instructions. The ceremony will incorporate recordings of the speech of the President of the State of Israel, the speech of the Israeli Prime Minister and the speech of the survivors. Beacon lighting will be held this year without the presence of survivors, but beacon videos and their story will be broadcast as each year during the ceremony. The rally will be broadcast on television, radio and internet channels in Israel as well as on the website and Facebook page of Yad Vashem.
We invite you to visit a comprehensive sub-site launched at Yad Vashem that includes a photo gallery, videos of beacon candles, study materials, online exhibitions and information on the the annual topic: Rescue by Jews – Solidarity in the World is Breaking Down.
