The state of Alabama is recalling victims of the Holocaust with a ceremony at the Capitol in Montgomery.

The Annual Day of Remembrance will be held Tuesday morning in the Old House Chamber at the Capitol.

The event is hosted by the Alabama Holocaust Commission each April. It's meant to remember those who were killed and suffered during the mass slaughter by Nazi Germany across Europe.

Rabbi Jonathan Miller of Temple Emanu-El in Birmingham will speak, and Gov. Robert Bentley will present a proclamation.
