In Texas, Jews and Christians united in a march against anti-Semitism

More than 120 Jews and Christians gathered in Dallas, Texas on April 24 for the "March of Remembrance." An event organized to honor the memory of the victims of the Holocaust and to denounce anti-Semitism. 

On Sunday April 24, Jews and Christians gathered at Southern Methodist University (SMU) for the March of Remembrance.

An event organized on the initiative of theHolocaust Remembrance Association to honor the memory of the six million Jewish victims of Nazism during the Second World War and to combat anti-Semitism.

according to CBN News, more than 120 people attended the rally, including Rosian Zerner, a Holocaust survivor, who spoke.

She told how when she was six years old, the Nazis took her family to a Lithuanian ghetto, where her parents organized her escape. She considers her survival to be miraculous.

“[I] must now live my life in gratitude because of this. The other miracle is that my parents survived, it was unheard of to have an intact family in Lithuania,” the survivor continued.

The Walk of Remembrance, also known as the March of Life, is a memorial march held annually since 2007 on Yom HaShoah, (Holocaust Remembrance Day) to "remember, reconcile and take a stand" .

This event was started by the German pastor, Jobst Bitner and his wife Charlotte. Along with descendants of German Wehrmacht soldiers, members of the SS and German police forces, they organized memorial and reconciliation marches at Holocaust sites across Europe.

Since 2007, marches have taken place in 20 countries and more than 400 cities in cooperation with Christians from different churches, as well as many Jewish communities.
