Colonel Ratu Jone Kalouniwai, the chief of staff of the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF), at the Golan Heights, attended the Israel Independence Day celebrations at Mount Hertzel in Jerusalem.

He was accompanied by his wife Folaukitoga Logavatu.

Meanwhile, On May 5 Colonel Ratu Jone also commemorated the Holocaust in which six million Jews perished.

It is remembered right across Israel. Sirens blared for two minutes and silence was also observed to remember the fallen.

This is what Colonel Kalouniwai posted on his Facebook page describing the event:

“Happy Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day.

“Yom Hasikaron laShoah ve-laG’vurah ‘Holocaust and Heroism Remembrance Day’, known colloquially in Israel and abroad as Yom HaShoah and in English as Holocaust Remembrance Day, or Holocaust Day, is observed as Israel’s day of commemoration for the approximately six million Jews who perished in the Holocaustas a result of the actions carried out by Nazi Germany and its accessories, and for the Jewish resistance in that period. In Israel, it is a national memorial day.

“On Yom HaShoah, ceremonies and services are held at schools, military bases and by other public and community organisations.”
