    For Holocaust Remembrance Day, Koolulam invited 600 Holocaust survivors, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren to sing together in a special project of Beit Avi Chai and Zikaron baSalon in a most exciting and unique singing event called Koolulam Remembers.

    The Holocaust survivors and their families participated in the event at Beit Avi Chai and sang one of the Hebrew songs that most symbolizes the life, joy, and hope of those who survived the Holocaust - Ofra Haza's Live.

This stamp depicts a teddy bear wearing the yellow star, with a Page of Testimony in the background. Pages of Testimony, collected by Yad Vashem, commemorate the names and preserve the memory of Holocaust victims. The inspiration for the teddy bear motif was provided by the “No Child’s Play” exhibition in the Art Museum at Yad Vashem. Amongst the toys on display is a teddy bear that accompanied a young girl during the dark years of the Holocaust as she and her family fled from Transylvania to Siberia.
