What are our goals?
Working through the past, giving survivors of the Holocaust a voice.
Healing and restoration between victims and perpetrators, and their descendants.
Taking a stand
For Israel and against modern antisemitism.
What are we doing?
Honor: We honor the Holocaust survivors and let their voices be heard and their story told. It is important in this time when, even in the face of the overwhelming documentation by the Nazis themselves of the reality of the Holocaust, there are so many who deny that the Holocaust even happened or claim that the reports were exaggerated. This is occurring not only in countries where there is a political agenda to do so, but in the U.S. as well.
Educate: The purpose of the March is to educate a generation that is often unaware of the reality of the horrors of the Holocaust – ignorant not only of the facts of what happened during that time, but also of the attitudes and incendiary propaganda that preceded it. Those attitudes and propaganda conditioned a nation of people to stand by and be silent while the atrocities were being committed.
Remember: We remember those who were lost in the Holocaust, and those who were brave enough to stand up against the horror and to raise their voices and act.
Engage: We take to the streets in Memorial Marches, raising our voices against modern-day antisemitism, Jew hatred and any form of racism, motivating people all over the globe to take a stand and speak out.

On May 15th, 2018, 6000 participants marched through Jerusalem at the March of the Nations.
Jews and Christians walking hand in hand proclaiming: “Israel, you are not alone!

Christians from all nations will come together for a conference in a special place in Jerusalem with a view of the Jaffa Gate and the David Citadel. On the third day, we will go to different cities in the north, south and center of Israel for joint public marches.
