Hillel @ Virginia Tech added 27 new photos to the album: Reading of the Names 2015. Yom HaShoah, or Holocast Remembrance Day, takes place on the 27th of the Hebrew month of Nisan. Jews around the world hold memorials and vigils, often lighting six candles in honor of the six million Holocaust victims. At Virginia Tech, we host a Reading of the Names ceremony on the Drillfield each year to memorialize those who were murdered. Reading the names of the men, women, and children killed during the Holocaust is a symbolic yet personal way of remembering these individuals. Thank you to the Hokies from all different places in our community who participated.
