Since 1955, Yad Vashem has worked to fulfill its mandate to preserve the memory of the six million Jews who were murdered in the Holocaust by collecting their names, the ultimate representation of a person’s identity. Millions of victims remain unidentified. Yad Vashem urgently calls upon Jewish communities to recover their names through a worldwide Names Recovery Project. Unless we assume collective responsibility for completing this vital mission, some of them may be lost forever. This is a race against time, before those who remember them are no longer with us.

I enjoyed my March of the Living Experience on the whole. I hope to either participate again either on the adult trips or as a chaperone as this trip taught me never to forget. I really appreciated the hard working staff and chaperones and want to thank them for their dedication and for all they instilled in me throughout the trip. This was truly a trip of a life time and I got meaning out of every minute of it. Thank you for making this trip so special!
