The March of Remembrance is a memorial walk taken annually since 2007 on Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) to “remember, reconcile and take a stand”.
We choose that day as a clear sign against anti-Semitism and because it is a powerful symbol of what happens when good people remain silent in the face of indifference and prejudice. The March of Remembrance is an American response to the March of Life (Europe) initiated by repentant descendants of high-ranking Nazi officers from Tübingen, Germany.
