The internationally recognized date for Holocaust Remembrance Day (Yom HaShoah) corresponds to the 27th day of Nisan on the Hebrew calendar.

Shoah, which means “catastrophe” or “utter destruction” in Hebrew, refers to the atrocities that were committed against the Jewish people during World War II. This is a memorial day for those who died in the Shoah. The Shoah also is known as the Holocaust, from a Greek word meaning “sacrifice by fire.” (Source:
