Millions pay respect to Holocaust victims

Corzine remains in critical condition

CAMDEN, N.J. - Gov. Jon S. Corzine on Monday underwent another operation on the leg he broke in a highway crash that left him in critical condition. The hour-long surgery at Cooper University Hospital, performed to clean out the 6-inch wound created when his left femur broke, was "uneventful," said Andrew Poag, a spokesman for the governor. Corzine remained in critical but stable condition. He also broke 12 ribs, his collarbone and chest bone and suffered some other, more minor injuries in Thursday's accident. "He continues to do, thankfully, far better than one would expect anyone with these injuries to do," said Dr. Steven Ross, the head of the trauma unit at Cooper.

Millions pay respect to Holocaust victims

JERUSALEM - Sirens sounded across Israel Monday morning, bringing life to a standstill as millions of Israelis observed a moment of silence to honor the memory of the victims of the Holocaust. The two-minute siren at 10 a.m. is an annual tradition marking Israel's Holocaust remembrance day, which began Sunday evening and ended at sundown Monday. Pedestrians froze in their tracks, buses stopped on busy streets, and cars on major highways pulled over as the country paused to pay respect to the 6 million Jews killed by the Nazis.
