Passing the Torch of Holocaust Memory to New Generations
For more than 25 years the March of the Living has brought together survivors and students from all over the world to ensure that first-hand accounts of the Holocaust are not lost. During their visits to Poland, where millions of innocent people were enslaved and murdered by Nazi Germany during WWII, survivors, those who helped them, and liberators all share their memories with young people.
As they walk through concentration camps, ghettos, and towns depleted of Jewish communities, a special bond forms as the original witnesses to the Holocaust pass their mantle to a new generation whose task it is to remember what they hear and see. Moving photographs and firsthand accounts show us the remarkable passing of the torch to the young of many faiths and cultures who become the new witnesses, carrying the torch toward a future of peace.
Based on an acclaimed exhibit of photographs launched at the United Nations.
The March of the Living is an educational program that brings survivors and young people from around the world to march from Auschwitz-Birkenau in memory of all victims of Nazi genocide and against prejudice, intolerance and hate.
