MARCH OF THE LIVING 2018
April 8 – 22, 2018
Celebrating 30 years of the March of the Living
and the 70th anniversary of the State of Israel
The March of the Living is an international education program that brings Jewish teens and adults from all over the world to Poland on Yom HaShoah, (Holocaust Memorial Day) to march from Auschwitz to Birkenau, the largest concentration camp complex built during World War II, and then to Israel to observe Yom HaZikaron (Israel’s Memorial Day), and Yom HaAtzmaut (Israel’s Independence Day). Among the goals of the March of the Living is for participants to learn the lessons of the Holocaust and to lead the Jewish people into the future vowing Never Again. The experience leads to a better understanding of the Holocaust and strengthens Jewish identity.
