Today, April 28, was the Holocaust Remembrance Day. On this day, Jews in Israel remember six million Jews systematically exterminated by Adolf Hitler-led Nazis of Germany and their collaborators in about a dozen countries in Europe during the German occupation. 

Although presently some people disagree with the exact number of six million Jews killed during the Second World War, but their number would be in several millions. This systematic mass murder, called the Holocaust, of Jewish babies to the old, was, no doubt, a grave crime against humanity.
