Sirens Wail As Israel Comes To Standstill

The wail of air raid sirens sounded across Israel on Thursday April 19 2012, signaling the country to come to a standstill in tribute to 6 million Jews who perished in the Holocaust. For two minutes, pedestrians stopped in their tracks and motorists stood next to their vehicles, heads bowed. In homes and businesses, people suspended their daily tasks to pay homage to victims of the Nazi genocide.
