MARCH OF THE LIVING
Young Adult PROGRAM 

We will be back soon with information for our 2025 program. In the meantime please see information relating to our 2024 program.

The March of the Living is a 2-week long journey in both Poland and Israel, with some of the highlights being:

 

The March of the Living itself - a walk from Auschwitz 1 to Birkenau, culminating in a mass memorial ceremony - 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;
 
After spending one week in Poland visiting sites of Nazi Germany’s persecution, as well as former and current sites of Jewish life and culture, participants travel to Israel the following week to celebrate Israel’s and the Jewish people's survival, growth and triumph. They experience both the emotional intensity of Yom HaShoah in Poland and Yom Hazikaron in Israel through to the joyous celebration of Yom Ha'atzmaut, Israel's Independence D

As you may know, March of the Living Australia has identified the need and importance to provide this unique program to and focus on Young Adults (18-35) as the future leaders of your communities. We are certain that this experience will have a huge impact on your lives.

 

2023 was the first year in which we selected and sent 14 Young Adults on this highly subsidised journey. The 'out of pocket' cost to the successful applicants is capped with the balance being funded by March of the Living Australia from funds which we raise for this purpose. 

The application process is fairly rigorous and entails both a written application as well as one or two interviews. Sadly, due to the limited funding not all applicants will secure a spot and each spot is contested. 

Please find our Pre-registration Letter and Info Pack, which contains key details about next year's program - the official dates, costs (with inclusions/exclusions listed), and all other vital/important points.
