A delegation of 204 young Jewish students and professionals went on a 6 day trip to Poland last week, to mark Yom HaShoah 2014.

Visits to Holocaust memorial sites, concentration camps and places of rich Jewish heritage culminated in March of the Living, which saw 11,000 Jews from all over the world march from Auschwitz to Birkenau in stark defiance of the Nazi death regime.

Organised by Scott Saunders since 2010, this year March of the Living UK took 7 Holocaust survivors together with young British Jews from across the spectrum on an educational and moving journey, as documented in these photos by Sam Churchill.
