March of the Living

March of the Living

Join 150,000 youth from around the world who have experienced this transformative experience.

On Yom HaShoah thousands of Jewish teens from countries around the world will share in a once-in-a-lifetime experience when they march three kilometers from Auschwitz to Birkenau, the largest concentration camp complex built by the Nazis during World War II. You could be there— along with thousands of other taking part in this event.

The March takes place on Yom Hashoah – Holocaust Remembrance Day – established in memory of the six million Jews who were murdered during the war. As one of the Marchers representing some thirty nations, you will walk hand in hand in silent tribute to all victims of the Holocaust.

“I didn’t realize how powerful it was until later, when I thought about the last time so many Jews were together in that place, during World War II. I made friends for life. And I understand the significant history of Israel in a deeper way.” Dylan Abrams, MOL participant, Rhode Island
