For 25 years, the March of the Living has organized visits for adults and students from all over the world to Poland, where millions of Jews were enslaved and murdered during WWII by Nazi Germany. The organization's goal is not only remembrance and ongoing witness to the terrible events of the past, but also a looking forward.

All the efforts for fighting in favor of life are praiseworthy and have to be supported without any kind of discrimination. For this reason I am very close to these initiatives, that are not only against death but also against the thousands discriminatory phobias that enslave and kill. - His Holiness Pope Francis
