Ceremony honouring Survivors & Righteous Among the Nations. Held at CENTRUM KONFERENCYJNO-SZKOLENIOWE Sale Kongresowe (Congress Hall), Warsaw Poland
The annual March of the Living program brings thousands of young people from around the world each year on Holocaust Remembrance Day to Auschwitz-Birkenau to honour the memory of the victims of the Holocaust and to pledge to build a better world for all humanity.
From Poland, participants travel to Israel, the birthplace and homeland of the Jewish People, where they commemorate Israel’s fallen soldiers on Yom Hazikaron and celebrate Israel’s independence on Yom Ha’atsmaut.
In Canada, March of the Living is sponsored by Jewish Federations of Canada-UIA and local UJA/CJA Federations.
