Memorial services and events throughout the country were due to continue Thursday, to mark Holocaust Remembrance Day which began on Wednesday night. At 10:00 a.m. a two-minute siren was scheduled to be sounded to remember the six millions Jews murdered by Nazis in the Holocaust.

Following the sounding of the siren, various ceremonies and events were due to commence immediately.

A ceremony was set be held at Warsaw Ghetto Square at Yad Vashem Holocaust museum, which President Shimon Peres, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Supreme Court President Asher Grunis were due to attend.

The Knesset prepared to hold a ceremony entitled "every person has a name," led by Peres and Netanyhau, in which the names of Holocaust victims will be read out.

On Thursday afternoon, youth from Israel and around the world were expected to participate in Poland's "March of the Living."
