2020 March of Remembrance Dallas

March of Remembrance Dallas is a local chapter of a Christian organization that started in Germany partnering with Southern Methodist University. We come together to remember the Holocaust, stand against anti-Semitism and hate and reconcile with the Jewish community during the month of Yom HaShoa (Holocaust Remembrance Day). The day will include a ceremony, music, march around campus and a closing ceremony with Holocaust survivors, repentant descendants of SS officers and dignitaries.

The marches were birthed in Tübingen, Germany by Jobst Bitner, a theologian and activist, as a German-Christian response to the Holocaust. The marches have grown to a worldwide movement led by Christian leaders and universities partnering with the Jewish community.

MARCH OF LIFE MOVEMENT

The March of Life: Memorial and reconciliation marches at historic locations of the Holocaust in Europe. Descendants of Nazi perpetrators finding words their fathers and grandfathers couldn´t find. A clear symbol for Israel and against modern anti-Semitism.

The March of Remembrance supports the March of Life in the United States. It honors the Holocaust survivors and let their voices be heard and their story told. The purpose of the March is to educate a generation that is often unaware of the reality of the horrors of the Holocaust and to remember those who were lost.

The HRA is a 501-c-3 educational organization, founded by descendant of Holocaust survivors, Rozalie and Mitch Jerome and based in Kingwood, Texas. It was formed to sensitize all people to the issues of the Holocaust and facilitate healing, reconciliation, and education.

TESTIMONIALS

VOLUNTEER

  • We hereby declare that we shall honor the distant voices of the Holocaust and the remaining survivors on this Holocaust Memorial Day, and we shall stand with them in memory of their most dreadful tragedy. We also declare that in a time of rising worldwide anti-Semitism, we will not allow the silent indifference of the past to rise again. We shall stand with those who have suffered this atrocity and provide a platform for the actual witnesses to give public testimony. I understand that the March of Remembrance is not a political rally, not a protest, and not a publicity stunt. I am also aware that carrying banners deemed as aggressive or displaying signs or clothing outside the spirit of this statement or the March of Remembrance shall not be allowed.
