"Why We March"



March of Remembrance is a Christian prayer walk held annually in remembrance of the Shoah (Holocaust) and has become a connecting point for people everywhere who wish to observe Yom HaShoah (Day of Holocaust Remembrance) in their local communities through public prayer and memorial events. As a Christian prayer movement we primarily address the strongholds of indifference in our respective localities, while honoring our Jewish neighbors through remembering important lessons learned from the Shoah.


We exist to provide resources for your city to plan special memorial events and for creating a platform where Shoah survivors and their descendants can give their testimony to the next generations. Where it is appropriate and possible, we recommend public prayer walks to support and attend Jewish-community sponsored events. Where that isn't possible, we help local volunteers organize respectable events. 


March of Remembrance also supports Shoah survivors in Israel today by organizing benefit events, awareness campaigns, and have a close partnership with Helping Hand Coalition in Israel. 


We are the American sister of March of Life International which began in Germany (2007) and has engaged hundreds of churches for national campaigns of prayer across western & eastern Germany, Ukraine, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Austria, and Hungary. Through March of Life Intl we are now working with the World Jewish Congress & March of the Living to celebrate the 70th Anniversary of the Nation of Israel in May 2018 (sign up for our email list to be updated as those plans are being prepared)


Maybe your city would like to hold a March of Remembrance? We want to help! Contact today for helpful resources to start planning in your city!

In late 2011 and again in February 2015, March of Remembrance gathered with Helping Hand Coalition Global Forum at the Israeli Knesset (Parliament) in Jerusalem to receive an award for raising awareness, and preserving the memories of the Holocaust.   We remember our dear friends, Paul Argiewicz (circled in this picture) and Rosalie Schiff, who both passed on this year. Click on this photo to read the stories of some of our heroes!   Helping Hand Coalition is dedicated to meeting the needs of Holocaust Survivor and under-privileged persons in Israel.
