Each memorial candle is wrapped with an "Our6Million" label containing the personal details of a man, woman or child who perished.For the past few years, on the eve of Yom
HaShoah, families all around Israel have been lighting a personal yahrzeit candle at home, in memory
of an individual who perished. This meaningful tradition respects
the memory of the life led by individuals who perished and keeps the memory of
the Holocaust alive - especially among the younger generation.
We remember not only 6 million who perished, but
we remember them as individuals. By lighting a personal candle, we remember who
they were and how they lived; we
remember the ‘lives’ of those who perished and not only remember what
happened to them at the end of their days.
