This is Jerusalem: 11:08 p.m.

SS Officer

Today is Yom Hashoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day. On Israeli t.v., Schindler’s List is playing. The other channels have been showing discussion shows and reflections on the Holocaust all night. Sixty-two years after the defeat of Nazi Germany, the destruction of Europe’s Jews still looms large here. Making the day more resonant are the ravings of Iran’s president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who calls for the destruction of the Jewish refuge even as Iran races to develop nuclear weapons.
