On April 19, 2012, thousands of Jewish teens from countries around the world will share in a once-in-a-lifetime experience when they march three kilometers from Auschwitz to Birkenau, the largest concentration camp complex built by the Nazis during World War II. You could be there— along with hundreds of other Canadians taking part in this event.
The March takes place on Yom Hashoah – Holocaust Remembrance Day – established in memory of the six million Jews who were murdered during the war. As one of the Marchers representing some thirty nations, you will walk hand in hand in silent tribute to all victims of the Holocaust.
This year Winnipeg is sending 46 participants – the highest number since the beginning of the program in 1988. Follow our journey at www.marchoftheliving.org and click on Coast to Coast 2012.
