About the event

80 years ago part of the Jewish population rose up against Nazi oppression in the Warsaw ghetto. Between April 19 and May 16, 1943, she fought with courage and determination before finally capitulating to German military power.

In commemoration of this event, the first day of the uprising was officially chosen by the Israeli government* to be

"The day of commemoration of the heroes and victims of the Holocaust".

The Jewish people took on this responsibility of memory so that such events would not happen again. What about us non-Jews? The Shoah is a direct consequence of our predecessors who justified the indiscible. The horrors committed are the result of anti-Semitic traditions, cultures and ideologies conveyed for centuries by ordinary men and women who have allowed themselves to be seduced for lack of truth.

It is clear that the speeches on the Jewish people and particularly on the nation of Israel are too often distorted and lead to justify denigration, hatred, murder.

Are we going to take our responsibility alongside the Jewish people to also do an act of memory and recall what happened?

Will you be present to stand up against anti-Semitism?

For 16 years, the March of Life movement has mobilized tens of thousands of people around the world during the Yom Hashoah period by inviting them to demonstrate in the streets with the message "Remember - Reconcile - Take a stand", and this in the face of any form of anti-Semitism and particularly its modern form, anti-Zionism.

*Although the commemoration of the heroes and victims of the Holocaust has been celebrated since December 1949, the government of Israel (Knesset) decided in 1951 to choose 27 Nissan of the Hebrew calendar (April 18 this year) as the official day of this commemoration.
