Arutz Sheva is happy to bring you the March of the Living's Yom Haatzmaut (Independence Day) March and Ceremony in Jerusalem, Israel. The participants will walk from Kikar Safra to the Kotel (Western Wall) where a new Torah scroll will be dedicated. The event will appear on this page live beginning at 12:30 p.m. (Israel time).

The March of the Living is an annual educational program which brings students from around the world to Poland, where they face the remnants of the Holocaust and the Nazi machine of destruction that executed it. On Holocaust Memorial Day (Yom HaShoah), thousands of participants march silently from Auschwitz to Birkenau, the largest Nazi concentration camp complex built during World War II.
