The March of the Living, a memorial in which students march from Auschwitz to Birkenau, began in Poland Thursday afternoon to mark Holocaust Remembrance Day.

This year's march, which includes some 11,000 students from 35 countries, Holocaust survivors and American veterans who helps liberate death camps, marks the 25th anniversary of the event.

After touring the concentration camps, participants continue on to a second leg of the trip in Israel.
