Around the world, Holocaust Remembrance Day was observed on Thursday, to pay respect to the many millions of people systematically killed by Nazi Germany and collaborators during World War II.

A siren wailed across Israel, with people stopping wherever they were to observe a moment of silence. At Yad Vashem, the national Holocaust Memorial in Jerusalem, dignitaries marked the day with a somber ceremony, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu laid a wreath.
