Holocaust remembrance week is April 12-19th. Holocaust Remembrance Day is the nation's annual commemoration of the Holocaust victims which had an estimated death toll of more than 6 million people in the mass murder campaign during World War II.
Each year state and local governments, workplaces, military bases, religious organizations, schools, and civic centers host observances and remembrance activities for their communities. These events usually occur during the Week of Remembrance, which runs from the Sunday before Holocaust Remembrance Day (Yom Hashoah) through the following Sunday.
To feel the full impact of what the Holocaust did to the nation, take a tour through the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington D.C. There are several exhibits which show you different aspects of the horrific events of the Holocaust and makes you understand what happened in that period of time.
