United to be a Light: March of Life worldwide on Yom HaShoah

Together for a Better Future without Antisemitism and Hatred of Jews

Yom HaShoah is the Jewish-Israeli day of remembrance for the Holocaust. In Israel and Jewish communities worldwide the names of the victims are read and six candles are lit in remembrance of the 6 million murdered Jews. We have a collective responsibility that something like this never happens again.

Through the Corona-pandemic we are standing in one of the greatest societal upheavals worldwide. Conspiracy theories and hate on the streets and on the internet are increasing. And with this an alarming explosion of Antisemitism in its various forms. Jews in many countries no longer feel safe. Will we perceive our collective responsibility? Will we overcome the lethargy of the inner lockdown? Will we stand for remembrance and reconciliation on Yom haShoah and publicly raise our voices in friendship to Israel and the Jewish community worldwide?

The March of Life is calling to take to the streets worldwide between April 8-11, 2021 with the message “Together for a better Future without Antisemitism and Hatred of Jews” and be a part of the Yom HaShoah commemoration. We want to publicly raise our voices with marches and events per local Corona restrictions and not surrender the streets to hatred and hostility!
