Paneriai Memorial holds 10th March of the Living

National Memorial Day for the Genocide of Lithuanian Jews Marked with Commemoration at Paneriai

The March of the Living, a walk from the Paneriai railway station to the Paneriai Memorial marks a part of the distance Vilnius ghetto prisoners had to cover to the massacre site in the Paneriai forest.

To the Jewish Community of Lithuania, the March of the Living means that “we, Jews, are alive, we, as children of the victims, stand strong against hatred, violence and atrocities, as well as that the Nazis and their accomplices failed to annihilate all Jews,” the community said in a press release.

More than 90 percent of Lithuania’s pre-war Jewish community of 220,000 people perished during the Nazi rule of Lithuania.
