Today marks Yom Hashoah, the Jewish day of Holocaust remembrance. On the Hebrew date each year, we honor the 6 million fallen and remember the brave men and women of all religious backgrounds who fought against Nazi oppression.

In Israel, that commemoration includes a special tradition–a siren that rings out across the nation, bringing the entire population to a stop for a moving moment of silence. Watch this stunning video of Israeli traffic brought to a standstill to honor the tradition, and share to raise awareness.
