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 really enjoyed the March of the living and thought it was such an eyeing opening trip. I feel that this trip is an essential part of my history and legacy and that the best way to experience a trip like this is to do it in a large group with lots of people who can support you. I would recommended this trip to my friends and family that I feel need a better understanding of the Jolocaust or someone who needs help understanding there Jewish identity.
