The March of the Living Virtual Plaque Project continues the March of the Living tradition of placing messages of peace, hope and remembrance, on wooden plaques on the train tracks of Auschwitz-Birkenau on Holocaust Remembrance Day.
March of the Living offers a digital option of submitting virtual plaques with personal messages, to be featured on the March of the Living website in the days leading to Holocaust Remembrance Day and beyond.
As time marches on, the stories of Holocaust survivors are at risk of becoming faded memories. Help us prevent history from being rewritten and fight against Holocaust denial and distortion, antisemitism and all forms of hatred. by creating your own virtual plaque with a message of hope or peace or in honor/remembrance of a Holocaust survivor.
International March of the Living will take place this year on April 28th in person following a two-year hiatus during the COVID-19 global pandemic. The March will operate with reduced capacity under the shadow of war in Ukraine, with only eight survivors scheduled to participate this year.
The theme of the March will therefore focus on the importance of passing the responsibility for Holocaust remembrance and education to the next generation – the grandchildren of those who endured the dark days of Nazi oppression and systematic annihilation of more than 6 million Jewish victims and those committed to remembering the past as a teaching tool for the future.
