Thousands mark Holocaust Remembrance Day with annual March of the Living

Thousands of young Jews from around the world gathered in Oswiecim, Poland, on Thursday to mark Holocaust Remembrance Day. They marched alongside Holocaust survivors and international politicians at the site of the former Auschwitz death camp run by Nazi Germany.

Some 10,000 marchers, who walked along a 3-kilometer (1.8-mile) route between two sites at Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp, waved Israeli flags and banners highlighting the issue of rising anti-Semitism.

The March of the Living has been held annually since 1988, when it began as part of an education program for young Jews.

It is estimated that 1.1 million of the 6 million Jews executed by the Nazis during World War II died at Auschwitz.

1. That made me cry.

The photo in the article at the link is a sculpture depicting the terror and horror at Dachau. It is really moving.
