VIRTUAL MEMORIAL PLAQUES
March of the Living is giving individuals around the world the opportunity to place a virtual memorial plaque against the backdrop of the infamous train tracks at the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp. As the 2020 March of the Living will not take place on Holocaust Remembrance Day due to the coronavirus pandemic, individuals can virtually participate in one of the most meaningful personal moments of the March by composing a personal message and placing it on a virtual plaque along the train tracks in Birkenau. Individual plaques and messages can be placed via a dedicated mini-site, nevermeansnever.motl.org.
