Posted

Adam Cable, of Pawtucket; Leah Tinberg, of Pawtucket (now living in Los Angeles); and Seth Finkle, of the Jewish Alliance of Greater Rhode Island; along with the Next Gen Delegation to the 2019 March of the Living, pose recently with the director and rabbi of the JCC Krakow in Poland. Adam, Leah and Seth were participants in the inaugural Next Gen March of the Living program. Other participants were from Savannah, Georgia, Washington, D.C., and Greensboro, North Carolina.

The International March of the Living is an annual educational program, bringing teens through adults from around the world to Poland and Israel to study the history of the Holocaust and to examine the roots of prejudice, intolerance and hatred.

Since its inception in 1988, more than 260,000 alumni from 52 countries have marched down the same 3-kilometer path leading from Auschwitz to Birkenau on Holocaust Remembrance Day as a tribute to all victims of the Holocaust. They then travel to Israel for Israel’s Memorial and Independence Day, and additional tours.
