Holocaust will be remembered in Cape Town

A siren commemorating the Holocaust will be sounded for the first time in Cape Town at ten o’clock this morning. The minute-long siren will be sounded at precisely the same time in Israel. The Western Province Zionist Council says the Jewish Community will sound the siren annually on Holocaust Day. It is done in solidarity with Israel and the Jewish people throughout the world to commemorate the loss of six million Jews, gypsies, Jehovah’s Witnesses and others murdered by Nazis during World War Two. A Holocaust survivor will switch on the siren at the Jewish Communal Centre in Gardens this morning.
