2022 International March of the Living took place this year on April 28th in person following a two-year hiatus during the COVID-19 global pandemic. The theme of the March focused 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.
