Who will tell the story when the last Survivor is gone? As we approach the end of the last generation of Holocaust Survivors, the world is confronted by this haunting — and sadly — ultimate question.
My Survivor takes a unique look at this inevitable reality by exploring the life-changing experiences of some of the 500 students who learned about the Holocaust through the intimate intergenerational relationships they forged with members of this remarkable, but rapidly disappearing Survivor population.

View a Virtual March of the Living Ceremony
For more than three decades, students, Holocaust Survivors, educators and leaders have travelled to Auschwitz-Birkenau on Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) to participate in the International March of the Living. They march in memory of the victims of the Nazis and to honor those who survived. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the 2020 March of the Living has been canceled. However, its mission remains as important as ever.
Watch a special virtual event to commemorate Yom HaShoah, including a special address by Israeli President Reuven Rivlin, first-hand testimonies from Holocaust Survivors, statements from March of the Living alumni and musical presentations.
The March of the Living is also encouraging community members to create virtual plaques. During the March, participants create plaques expressing messages related to the Holocaust. Typically, they hold their plaques as they march from Auschwitz to Birkenau. To create your own virtual message to fight against anti-Semitism and other forms of hate, click here.
