Holocaust Remembrance Day in Jerusalem

Today is Holocaust Remembrance Day (Yom HaShoah) in Israel.  Every year on this day a 2-minute siren sounds across the country, summoning all to stop and to remember.

This clip, uploaded by Brian Schrauger, records the siren and response near Jerusalem’s Old City at 10:00 this morning (Israeli time).
