mission statement

March of the Living Australia is a dynamic not for profit organisation dedicated to combating intolerance through an inclusive and immersive educational experience centred on Holocaust memorialisation, social justice and creating a powerful connection to Israel, our community and future generations.

MARCH OF THE LIVING

The March of the Living itself, a 3-kilometre walk from Auschwitz 1 to Birkenau, is a tribute to all victims of the Holocaust, their memories and their legacies. The March is designed to contrast with the death marches, which began towards the end of World War II and continued virtually up until the Third Reich’s last days.

2500

More than 2,500 Australians have participated on the March of the Living program to date

PROGRAMS

March of the Living is open to individuals of all ages from all over the world.

HEAR ABOUT THE JOURNEY

“It wasn’t just a tragedy in the lives of Jews, this was a tragedy in the whole of mankind. The world needs to know what atrocities were done in order to prevent them from happening again. It s important for youngsters to go, in order to carry that knowledge.”
