Remarkable stories and photographs that bear witness to the Holocaust from the much-respected organization The March of the Living. An address by Steven Spielberg is included in new Afterword for new edition, released to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the end of WWII.

This updated edition of Witness, which includes a new Afterword with an address by Steven Spielberg, commemorates the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II and the liberation of Europe from the Nazis. For over 25 years, the March of the Living has organized visits for adults and students from all over the world to Poland, where millions of Jews were enslaved and murdered by Nazi Germany. The organization's goal is not only to remember and bear witness to the terrible events of the past, but also to look forward. Witness is a compilation of firsthand accounts from the survivors who have participated in March of the Living programs, together with responses from the people, young students in particular, of many faiths and cultures worldwide who have traveled with the group over the years. In the new edition each photograph of a survivor, rescuer, or WWII liberator is embedded with an invisible barcode that, via mobile phone, connects the reader to the video testimony of the individual pictured. 75 videos housed on the USC Shoah Foundation or March of the Living websites can be accessed this way. The new edition has also been enriched with compelling new liberation stories and additional content honoring those who rescued Jews during WWII. Along with the new Afterword, the book includes a Preface featuring Pope Francis and Pope John Paul II, and words from Barack Obama that remind us how important “witnesses” are to a true understanding of history and how we behave to one another today and in the future.

Eli Rubenstein is the National Director of The March of the Living Canada. He is a religious leader at a Toronto synagogue founded by Holocaust survivors which sponsors Passover seders for the homeless, Holocaust education programs, and award-winning documentaries.

The March of the Living is an annual educational program that takes students from all over the world to Poland, in order to study the Holocaust.

I ask you to convey to the organizers of the March of Living my closeness to them and their mission. All the efforts for fighting in favor of life are praiseworthy and have to be supported without any kind of discrimination. For this reason I am very close to these initiatives, that are not only against death but also against the thousands discriminatory phobias that enslave and kill. - His Holiness Pope Francis

Holocaust memories book reissued for 75th anniversary of VE Day. The book now includes invisible barcodes embedded in every photo of a survivor, rescuer or liberator that can take the reader online to video of their testimony - The National Post
