Commuters, workers, students and Israelis of all stripes took two minutes from their lives Thursday morning to stand in silence on Holocaust Remembrance Day. At 10 a.m. a two-minute siren was sounded throughout the country to remember the six million Jews murdered at the hands of the Nazis in the Holocaust.
Following the siren, various official state ceremonies and events were due to commence immediately.
