Holocaust Remembrance Day or Yom HaShoah, day of the Destruction, starts tonight.

- Ilana-Davita: Books in Nazi-Occupied France and on Yom HaShoah
- Baila: Remember
Baila remembers learning about the Shoa in 5th grade. I learned about the Shoa from my 4th grade teacher. She had a sister that she had never met, because her sister had died in the Holocaust. My teacher was born after the Holocaust to her survivor parents. I also remember being frightened of showers after we learned how the Jews had been told they were going to take a shower and then instead were gassed with Zyklon B.
