Holocaust Victims Remembered

By  | 

People around the world are remembering those that suffered, fought and died.

The day is called Yom Hashoah, marking the anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising.

Some Florida State students are remembering the six million Jews murdered during the Holocaust.

Students stand on the steps of the Moore building reading the names of the millions killed. They also gather to light candles, and watch a vigil take place in Israel.

David Weiss, a Florida State student, said, "I feel it's more important now than ever that I should stand up and read the names of those who died, because it's up to the current generation to remember those who passed, because we don't want a horror like this to be forgotten."

Organizers say the event brings light to the genocide that takes place every day across the world.
