PM Justin Trudeau Remarks March of the Living 30th Anniversary Gala

Thank you, Nate, for your kind introduction. And thanks everyone gathered here at the March of the Living – This is our Legacy Gala for the warm welcome.

Before we begin, I want to say a few words about my dear friend Nate, who so bravely shared his story with countless Canadians.

He, along with other Holocaust survivors, many of who are in the room tonight, have brought one of History’s darkest chapters to life, reminding us of our shared responsibility to never let such hatred take root in our homes, our schools, and societies.

To Eli Rubenstein and the organizers of tonight’s event National Chair, Heshy Altbaum, Toronto Chair, Marcy Abramsky, and Dinner Chairs, Ruth Ekstein, Tammy Glied and Jennifer Green – I would like to thank you for all you do to support this important initiative.

On Nov. 11, Canadians will gather at cenotaphs, schools, churches, synagogues and other public places to mark the sacrifices of Canadian soldiers in armed conflicts around the world.

To make the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II even more significant, March of the Living Canada (MOL) is asking schools taking part in Remembrance Day activities to add the video of a unique peace song to their memorials – Lay Down Your Arms.

Written by a wounded Israeli veteran of the Yom Kippur War to honour his fallen comrades, with lyrics by a Canadian songwriter and a bridge by a local musician, the song “has Canadian content and a universal message,” said MOL national director Eli Rubenstein.
