Time & Location
About The Event
The International March of the Living (MOTL) is the largest gathering of Jewish high school juniors and seniors in the world, attracting thousands of students annually from over 40 countries. The two-week program gives these teenagers the opportunity to commemorate Yom Hashoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, at Birkenau and to celebrate Yom Ha’atzmaut, Israel Independence Day, in Israel. On April 21, 2020 thousands of Jews and non-Jews, from countries all around the world, will share in a once-in-a-lifetime experience when they march the 3-kilometers from Auschwitz to Birkenau, the largest concentration camp complex built by the Nazis during World War II. The March commemorates Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day. There will be a memorial service at one of the gas chambers/crematoria, in Birkenau, which will conclude with the singing of Hatikvah, reaffirming Am Yisrael Chai – The Jewish People Live. From Poland, you will fly to Israel to join the entire Jewish community in celebrating Yom Ha’atzmaut, Israel’s 72nd Independence Day, on April 29, 2020.
