The March of Remembrance, also known as March of Life, is an international organization that honors the survivors and victims of the Holocaust while promoting healing and reconciliation between victims, perpetrators, and their descendants. It was birthed in Tübingen, Germany by Jobst Bitner, a theologian and activist, as a German-Christian response to the Holocaust. The marches have grown to a worldwide movement led by Christian leaders and universities partnering with the Jewish community.

March of Remembrance Dallas is a local chapter of a Christian organization that partners with Hillel at SMU to remember the victims of the Holocaust, stand against anti-Semitism and hate, and reconcile with the Jewish community during the season of Yom HaShoa (Holocaust Remembrance Day). Our marches include a ceremony with music, Holocaust survivors, dignitaries and repentant Nazi descendants. Meaningful scholarships will be awarded to SMU students at the conclusion of our gathering, with a reception immediately following.

The March of Remembrance Dallas appreciates the help it receives from the Nathaniel Foundation.
