World Holocaust Remembrance Day, also known by its Hebrew name Yom HaShoah, is on Thursday and is a time meant for reflection of the events of the Holocaust, which killed millions of Jews in systematic and cruel ways. Under the direction of German Führer Adolf Hitler, the Nazis controlled large sections of Europe during World War II and operated numerous death camps. Six million Jews were methodically murdered, as well as hundreds of thousands of Roma, homosexuals, disabled people, political opponents and other victims. These people were shot, starved, gassed and tortured. Yom HaShoah typically falls on the Hebrew calendar on the 27th of the month Nisan, which this year translates to April 12. Like many Jewish holidays, the day of remembrance begins at sunset on the evening before. To remember those who were lost, here are some quotes about the Holocaust, from victims, survivors and observers of the horrors.
