In a few hours, at sunset on April 15 2015, Yom HaShoah will begin here in California. It will end at sunset on April 16, 2014.
Yom HaShoah is one of three Holocaust Rememberance Days. January 27 is the UN-declared day; it is the anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau extermination camp in 1945.
YomHaShoah is the day declared by the State of Israel; it falls on 27th of Nisan.
The third day is the 10th of Tevet, the memorial day for Holocaust victims whose date of death is unknown. The Jewish Virtual Library has an array of suggestions.
The theme selected this year by Yad Vashem ("The Jewish People's Living Memorial to Holocaust") is The Anguish of Liberation and the Return to Life: Seventy Years Since the End of WWII.

The story of the Glass House is one of the most fascinating historical events of that era. Much like the man behind the operation, Kraus, this event has somehow evaded public attention and never received the recognition it deserved. The Beit Haedut museum in Nir Galim has recently built a replica of the Glass House, in efforts to right this historical wrong. The forgotten story is now beginning to shed its anonymity thanks to the initiative of Ariel Bariach, the head of the museum.
