A siren will sound at 10 am throughout the State of Israel to bring citizens to their feet across the country as a measure of respect for those who fell as victims of the Holocaust.

If by some chance there is a rocket attack at that time, the nature of the siren will change, and will rise and fall a number of times instead.Hana Levi Julian
