Two Minutes for Six Million

What does it look like when a nation stands still? That's what happens every year during Holocaust Remembrance Day. For two minutes, a siren sounds throughout the country and traffic stops, people halt and the Jewish state pauses to remember the 6 million who died in the Holocaust.

It's a sobering reminder of the horrors of what is called the "Shoah" here in Israel.

Here's two minutes of video of what it looks like here in Israel along with some footage from those darks days. Please be forewarned some of this footage is graphic. Yet it's a stark picture of the abyss and why the Jewish people vow "never again."
