“Blind Love” Film Screening & Q&A

On December 22, 2020, the International March of the Living held an Exclusive Screening and Q&A of “Blind Love: A Holocaust Journey through Poland with Man’s Best Friend.” The Q&A featured a discussion between the film’s producer and Director of Education for the International March of the Living, Eli Rubenstein and Liron Artzi, a March of the Living alumna from the Israel Guide Dog Center for the Blind.

Blind Love recounts a trip to Poland of six blind Israelis and their guide dogs who took part in the annual March of the Living, where they visited once thriving sites of Jewish life and culture. On Holocaust Remembrance Day, the blind participants and their guide dogs marched from Auschwitz-Birkenau in memory of the victims of Nazi genocide and against prejudice, intolerance and hate.

The Q&A portion was recorded, however the film will not be posted publicly. Learn more about how to view the film by clicking on the button below.

“Following the March of the Living ceremony in Birkenau on Holocaust Remembrance Day, I thanked the delegation of blind marchers for joining us on our journey through Poland.

One of the women softly uttered profound words which I carry with me always and which I shall never forget:

'I saw nothing…..but I felt everything.'

Those words, I believe, symbolize the essence and the impact of the March of the Living.”
