March of the Living
The March of the Living Southern Region, a proud program of the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County, engages, enlightens and educates students from Florida, Texas, Georgia, Kentucky, Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana and New Zealand. Traveling to Poland to march from Auschwitz to Birkenau on Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Memorial Day) and on to Israel to observe Yom HaZikaron (Israel Remembrance Day and celebrate Yom Ha’Atzmaut (Israel Independence Day), participants become ambassadors of memory for victims of the Holocaust.
March of the Living stands as the antithesis of the Nazi Death March. Teen and adult delegations march the same path as those who were murdered, as a tribute. The lives of six million Jews and five million others that were lost have made an indelible mark on our history; these men, women and children are remembered and will never be forgotten.
