Join us as we pay tribute to Holocaust survivor, lifelong activist and Holocaust educator Izzy Arbeiter with the Stephan Ross Excellence in Holocaust Education Award.

The International March of the Living is an annual educational program that 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. With growing discrimination and a rise in antisemitism, it is a critical time to instill lessons of the Holocaust in our next generation.

Since its inception in 1988, more than 260,000 alumni from 52 countries have marched down the same 3-kilometer path leading from Auschwitz to Birkenau on Holocaust Remembrance Day—Yom HaShoah—as a tribute to all victims of the Holocaust.

New England Friends of March of the Living (NEMOTL) works to ensure the endurance of the March of the Living program through its Teen Trip Scholarship Fund by creating awareness, commitment and empowerment in New England youth. Our virtual tribute event directly supports the scholarship fund, which furthers MOTL’s goals of educating Jewish teenagers about the dangers of hatred and intolerance and providing essential tools to be tomorrow’s leaders for a just and compassionate world.

Proceeds from the event directly support the NEFMOTL Teen Trip Scholarship Fund. NEFMOTL brings New England teens together with teens around the world to Poland and Israel to study the history of the Holocaust and grapple with the roots of prejudice, intolerance and hatred.
