Descendants of the Shoah Inc. began in Melbourne, Australia in 1991 as a group of sons and daughters of Holocaust survivors wanting to explore our parents experiences, the similarities in our childhoods and how this would affect our own children, the third generation.
Melbourne has one of the largest populations per capita of Holocaust survivors in the world and is unique in that we are largely a post-war migrant and refugee community. The Descendants of the Shoah Inc. is secular and not affiliated with any communal or religious institution.

They will travel to see the concentration camps of Auschwitz-Birkenau, Treblinka and Majdanek. The highlight in Poland will be the March of the Living as the adults join Jewish youth, from all corners of the earth, as they march from Auschwitz to Birkenau on Yom Hashoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day. Option fto fly to Israel and spend a week visiting the country, participating in Yom Hazikaron, Memorial Day, and Yom Ha'atzmaut, Israel Indepedence Day, with the rest of the State.

The trip will culminate with another March to the Old City in Jerusalem, and the Mega Event Concert, with the other participants of the March of the Living.

Descendants of the Shoah would like to thank Emmanuel Santos for giving us permission to use his deeply moving and evocative images of Poland in our website.
His images depict the sombre areas where millions of men, women and children were put to death, thus creating a photographic essay of the past - his reminder and warning.
