The full name of the day commemorating the victims of the Holocaust is Yom Hashoah Ve-Hagevurah - literally the Day of (remembrance of) the Holocaust and the Heroism. It is marked on the 27th day in the month of Nisan - a week after the seventh day of Passover, and a week before Yom Hazikaron (Memorial Day for Israel's fallen soldiers). It marks the anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising.
