Observed on Nisan 27, the annual Yom HaShoah observance marks the anniversary of concentration camps being liberated at the close of World War II. 

It is a Jewish day of remembrance for the lives and the heroism of the six million Jewish people who died in the Holocaust, and the heroism of survivors and rescuers.

 The first official commemorations took place in 1951, and the observance of the day was anchored in a law passed by the Knesset in 1959.
