THE MARCH OF THE LIVING is an international, educational program that brings Jewish people from all over the world to Poland on Yom Hashoah, Holocaust Memorial Day, to march from Auschwitz to Birkenau, the largest concentration camp complex built during World War II.

Netzer joins the March of the Living UK youth movement bus every year to learn about the history of the holocaust and the roots of prejudice. Our trip has a specific focus on the role of youth movements in the holocaust, what that meant then and what that means to us today.

A Testimonial from an RSY-Netzer bogeret…

“I went on MOTL not knowing what to expect at all. It really brought history to life for me and gave the holocaust a whole new meaning. There was great education, I got to meet great people and educators and have a once in a lifetime experience with them. It will sound weird, but the trip is also a lot of fun because you meet so many people and you just get so much out of it!”
