MOTL New England’s Mission
The International March of the Living is an annual educational program, which brings individuals from all over the world to Poland and Israel, in order to study the history of the Holocaust and to examine the roots of prejudice, intolerance and hate.

Program Prepares Teens to Face Holocaust Deniers, Anti-Semitism
‘March of the Living’ Program Takes Teens to Poland and Israel
BOSTON, MASS. — World War II Supreme Allied Commander and future U. S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower predicted that someday there would be people brazen and hateful enough to deny the Holocaust ever occurred.
Today, 77 years after the end of WW II, amidst the worldwide rise of anti-Semitism, thousands of Jewish teens annually visit the Nazi death camps under the auspices of March of the Living to see where so much happened and to try to understand why.
See posts and photos from previous teen trips to Poland and Israel!
Teens from New England marched from Auschwitz to Birkenau concentration camps in Poland led by Israeli President Reuven Rivlin. Then, just days later, they celebrated Israel’s 70th Independence Day in Jerusalem.
