March of the Living 2018

The 2018 MOTL will be something very special. 2018 marks the 30th anniversary of the March of the Living and the 70th anniversary of Israel. Throughout the world, teens, survivors and adults will be traveling to Israel and Poland.  This will be the largest March of the Living ever.

 

On the March of the Living, we will travel with individuals from all over the world to Poland and Israel in order to study the history of the Holocaust and to examine the roots of prejudice, intolerance and hate. 

 

We will spend the first week in Poland traveling around the country, searching for traces of a world that no longer exists. The highlight in Poland will be on Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, when delegations of all ages from around the world will join together to march down the 3-kilometer path from Auschwitz to Birkenau, as a tribute to all victims of the Holocaust. Like many, we may leave Poland wondering how it was possible for the destruction of almost an entire generation of Jews to occur – yet we will pledge to keep their memory alive. 

 

We will then fly to Israel and encounter a country that is striving valiantly to keep the age-old flame of Jewish nationhood alive. On Yom HaZikaron, Israel’s Memorial Day, we will join together with all of Israel as they mourn their fallen soldiers and victims of terror. The trip will culminate on Yom Ha’atzmaut, Israel Independence Day, when all delegations will once again join for another march - this time to the Old City in Jerusalem, followed by a Mega Event Concert at the Armoured Corps Museum at Latrun - the Tank Museum - where the Battle of Latrun took place in 1948.

Please let us know if you are interested in the program. We are planning to have two buses - one for adults and one for teens - but space is limited!
