The Jewish faith holds an annual anniversary to remember those who were killed during the Holocaust.

The holiday varies in date from year-to-year because it follows the Hebrew calendar, but this year the anniversary began at sundown on May 1, and continued until sundown on May 2.

It’s a day that commemorates the killing of six million people men, women and children.

“So today we say Hitler, you’re not getting your way,” said Ahser Hecht, Chabad of RGV rabbi. “You don’t get your way.”

Hecht said  we’re a nation that’s strong, vibrant, proud, loving, tolerant and today we do “mitzva,” Hebrew for good deeds.

“We pray, we study, we care for one another, we take care of the world that God gave us,” Hecht said.
