Each year in the last 10 years, the March of the Living Foundation has organised the March of the Living, offering the possibility for everyone to remember the victims of the Holocaust in Hungary. The programme consists of a memorial tour and speeches in the streets of Budapest. With regard to the Wallenberg centennial, this year’s March of the Living focuses on the righteous people, among them Raoul Wallenberg. The march begins on the quay named after Sára Salkaházi and finishes on the quay named after Wallenberg. H.E. Mr. László Kövér, the Speaker of the Hungarian National Assembly and H.H. Mr. Per Westerberg, Speaker of the Riksdag have confirmed their participation at the event.

(Sára Salkaházi was a sister of the Society of Social Nurses, the rescuer of almost one hundred Hungarian Jews and a martyr at the hands of the Arrow Cross regime).
