Summary"The publication of Megillat Hashoah marks a milestone in the transformation of Yom Hashoah into a sacred day within the cycle of the Jewish year, taking its rightful place as a day of mourning and religious commemoration... Megillat Hashoah [supplies] us with a Hebrew text with translation, which will be read at services on Yom Hashoah year after year, a text that tells the story of the Shoah in brief but powerful passages that can and must become part of the collective memory of the Jewish people. This repetition, year after year, from generation to generation, will become the liturgical foundation for commemoration of these terrible events that must never be forgotten." —Rabbi Reuven Hammer, Introduction, page 9
