Today is a special and very important day in the Jewish faith–it is Yom HaShoah. It is a day where many people remember those who they lost in the Holocaust. Instagram has a special blog post today dedicated to the remembrance and many people have contributed to the #YomHaShoah hashtag. There are currently hundreds of photos, as well as a special hashtag designating 2013’s uploaded images. Additionally, there is a photo based project that is aimed at educating people about the terrible time in history, and there are ceremonies happening everywhere.
In particular to the photo industry though, this hits home for many of us. Two of the industry’s giants, B&H Photo Video Pro Audio and Adorama, are both owned and operated by Conservative Jews. And without them, the photo industry wouldn’t be what it is today.
