Hundreds gather for Holocaust Remembrance Day

LOS ANGELES

/*Yom HaShoah*/, the /*Holocaust Remembrance Day*/, is an annual event that reminds people about the atrocities of genocide and war.

The event was attended by /*Holocaust*/ survivors, who were forced into concentration camps by the Nazis.

"This is a special day especially for me. I am today 80 years old, and I was 13. So I made it. I'm here to say that. We have to speak and we have to give the message, and that's what I'm here for," said one Holocaust survivor who was in attendance.

Holocaust remembrance events took place throughout the Sunday in Southern California.
