The ‘March of the Living’ in memory of the victims of the Holocaust is also held in Budapest every year. This year's parade in the Hungarian capital took place on Sunday afternoon.
Following two years of hiatus due to the new corovirus pandemic, thousands of people marched in the city on Holocaust memorial day to demonstrate against all forms of exclusion and prejudice.
For the 17th time, the March of the Living in Budapest brought together young and old, Jews and non-Jews, to remember in a sincere way.
Dani Dajan, Director of the Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial Museum in Jerusalem, sent a video message to the marchers. He stressed the need for four pillars: mourning, knowledge, emotion and lessons learned, so that what happened in the past can never be repeated.
Yakov Hadas-Handelszman, Ambassador of the State of Israel to Hungary, said that the March of the Living is also an educational program to enable young people to learn about the past from Holocaust survivors who are still alive and who have told them about what happened. The March's mission is to create a world in which "never again" is a reality not only for Jews but for all people. He stressed that there is no place for anti-Semitism in the 21st century, and that the Holocaust is an eternal warning to 'never again'.
