President of Israel Reuven Rivlin to lead the 30th March of the Living

This year, President Reuven Rivlin will head the March of the Living between the Auschwitz and Birkenau concentration and death camps in Poland.

Every year for the past 30 years, thousands of people from around the world have come together in Poland for the March of the Living to mark Holocaust Remembrance Day.

This year, 12,000 participants are making the historic 3.2 kilometer march with Holocaust survivors from Auschwitz to Birkenau in memory of the millions who perished in the Holocaust and proclaim, “Never again.”

Major-General Yoav Mordechai, the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories, said on Thursday that the March of the Living – in which he will participate this afternoon -is a demonstration of Jewish power.

He said, “The mixing of officers with representatives of bereaved families and Holocaust survivors is a demonstration of power that the IDF will never allow the events of the Holocaust to repeat themselves.”

  1. The next big concern “Israel needs to be prepared for” ; is the possibility, that the Government in Poland may decide some “unethical means” to have these Concentration Camps demolished – ( indirectly by criminals ).
    ………………………………………………………………………….
    The Polish Government, has taken an immoral stance by rewriting WWII history & introducing draconian laws to lessen their guilt. Physical reminders will be next ; there needs to be a plan of action to prevent such a tragedy.
    ………………………………………………………………………….
    Make no mistake ; despite these Death Camps being a place of remembrance ; Poles don’t have this respect.!
