Israel's Ambassador to the United Nations Ron Prosor attended a March of the Living reception Tuesday, in honor of the international educational program  in which students and Holocaust survivors march from Auschwitz to Birkenau in memory of Holocaust victims.

Reflecting on his experience of the March Prosor said: “Standing in Auschwitz and Birkenau, hearing survivors speak while standing in their old barracks, the song, ‘Am Yisroel Chai’ gains a whole new meaning.”

This year marks the program's 25th anniversary, and for the first time during the march, Holocaust survivors and World War II concentration camp liberators will be brought together. Many participants will continue to Israel after the event to celebrate Independent Day.
