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.
Who we are
History of March of Remembrance
Jobst and Charlotte Bittner are the initiators of the March of Life movement. Since 2007, March of Life has organized memorial marches in more than 20 nations and over 400 cities. In 2009 Ted Pearce brought the vision of March of Life to the US and birthed March of Remembrance with the first march in Dallas, TX. In 2018 he stepped down as president of March of Remembrance, but continues to be a friend of March of Remembrance with his gifts and music.
March of Remembrance Director for Texas: Rozalie Jerome, Houston
Rozalie Jerome is our Director for Texas. She was raised in a conservative Jewish home, and is the child of Holocaust survivors who were rescued by Christians in Hungary. For almost ten years, she and her husband Mitch have been spearheading the March of Remembrance Houston for reconciliation between Jews and Christians and taking a bold stand for Israel. They are also founders of the Holocaust Remembrance Association.
March of Remembrance, National Coordinator: Claudia Kiesinger, New York
Claudia Kiesinger is the National Coordinator for March of Remembrance. She has been part of the March of Life movement since 2007 with her own personal family history as descendant of Nazi perpetrators. She is also the representative of the UN Prayer Watch, a Christian prayer and advocacy initiative at the UN for Israel.
In 2011 and 2015, March of Remembrance was honored by the Israeli Knesset for its special efforts on behalf of Holocaust survivors.
March of Remembrance is not a political statement, a rally or publicity stunt. The purpose of the march is to honor the survivors of the Holocaust. It is not a platform for publicity to promote an agenda on the part of any person or organization and is no platform for proselytizing.

Yom HaShoah 2023
Uprising Against Antisemitism
The Jewish Holocaust Remembrance Day Yom HaShoah is the anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising in April 1943, and this year marks the 80th anniversary. So Yom HaShoah not only commemorates the victims of the Holocaust, but also the many heroes who resolutely stood up against the Nazi plan to exterminate all Jews at that time.
Today, the State of Israel and flourishing Jewish life around the world are proof that the Nazis failed to reach their goal.
Nevertheless, Jewish life in Israel and worldwide is increasingly threatened by aggressive antisemitism in its various forms. It does not matter whether it comes from the left, the right, the religiously motivated or even from the middle of society: It is our responsibility not to remain silent and to take a stand!
Therefore, we are calling for a March of Life in every city and in every country to publicly raise our voices: For remembrance – for reconciliation – for Israel and against antisemitism!
Let’s take a stand against antisemitism. Are you with us?

United to be a Light: March of Remembrance on Yom HaShoah 2021
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. Jewish people 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 Remembrance together with March of Life called 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 raised our voices publicly with marches and events per local Corona restrictions and did not surrender the streets to hatred and hostility!

On occasion of the 75th anniversary of the founding of the State of Israel, join us for the March of the Nations from May 14-17, 2023! Come to Jerusalem with people from many nations and all over Israel, and become a part of God’s mission: “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord.” (Is 2:3)
When David Ben Gurion proclaimed the modern State of Israel on May 14, 1948, the words of the prophets in the Bible were fulfilled after thousands of years. They had spoken of the return of the Jewish people to the land of Israel. It is one of the greatest miracles of our time that this happened only three years after the greatest catastrophe in Jewish history, the Holocaust. The March of the Nations is calling Christians from around the world, who stand for Israel and against antisemitism, to come together to celebrate the 75th birthday of the modern state of Israel.
What to expect during these three special days in Israel:
Learn how blessings for Israel and the nations can come from actively confronting the 2,000 year history of Christian antisemitism that saw its horrible culmination in the Holocaust.
Meet Holocaust survivors and their descendants living in Israel today, and get to to know their stories.
Celebrate the miracle of the fulfillment of biblical prophecy with Christians from around the world.
Follow the call of the prophets: “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord. The law will go out from Zion, the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.” (Is 2:3)
