March of the Living is a 2-week international, educational program bringing 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 Memorial Day) and Yom Ha'Atzmaut (Israel Independence Day).


Among the goals of the March of the Living is for teens and adults to learn the lessons of the Holocaust and to lead the Jewish people into the future vowing Never Again.
