The Adult March of the Living is a journey to Poland and Israel to learn about the Jewish community that once flourished in Europe, the tragedy of the Holocaust, and the establishment and survival of the State of Israel. The opportunity to travel with Holocaust survivors is limited and Canadian adults are encouraged to take advantage of this unique experience.

In POLAND: The program includes visits to Polish cities, towns and villages that were once vibrant centers of Jewish life and learning. You will visit the concentration/death camps of Auschwitz-Birkenau, Majdanek, and Treblinka where millions of European Jews were annihilated. Your experience in Poland will be marked by special observances, culminating with the March of the Living itself on Yom Hashoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) – a three-kilometer silent march between Auschwitz and Birkenau with thousands of people from around the world. A one-week Poland-only option is available.

In ISRAEL: The program will combine visits exciting places and ancient sites, including Jerusalem, the Galilee and Golan Heights, Tel Aviv, the Negev Desert and more. On Yom Hazikaron (Israel’s Remembrance Day) participants will attend ceremonies honoring Israeli soldiers who sacrificed their lives in defense of their country. The next evening, Yom Ha’aztmaut (Israel’s Independence Day) will include a celebration in honor of the establishment of the State of Israel.
