JPost — Tens of thousands of people from Israel and around the world took part in this year’s March of the Living on Monday, a memorial in which students march from Nazi death concentration camps Auschwitz to Birkenau. The march began in Poland on Monday afternoon to mark Holocaust Remembrance Day.
President Shimon Peres sent a message to the participants of the march before it began. “There are marches which are measured by the length of the journey, there are marches which are measured by time,” he said. “You came on a march which cannot be compared, it is a march from the lowest point to the highest peak. The lowest point is the actions of the Nazis. There was no atrocity like it in history.”
