“In the face of its historic responsibility for having caused World War II and the genocide of the Jewish people, Germany is a country of unmerited grace," Bittner said. "All who remember how indifference and silence can make equally guilty, must never again remain silent in the face of hatred of Jews or any form of racist injustice. The aim of the March of Life in Berlin is to commemorate, and also to make a statement of solidarity and friendship with Israel and against
anti-Semitism.”
