March of Remembrance and Hope Canada
March of Remembrance and Hope is an experiential program designed to teach university and college students of different religious and ethnic backgrounds about the dangers of hate and bigotry through the study of the Holocaust and other genocides, and to promote allyship among people of diverse cultures and faith backgrounds. Students learn about the importance of community and the beauty of learning from and with one another. MRH is run under the auspices of the Toronto Holocaust Museum, UJA Federation of Greater Toronto.
“When a survivor of the Holocaust holds hands with a Rwandan student in Auschwitz, and when they dry each other tears and learn from one another, we know that Hitler and tyrants like him can be defeated.”

Jenn left a mark on everyone on the trip. Even if many lost contact as the years passed, they still followed her career. Jenn’s light continued to shine in so many ways. She was a driving force behind Operation Inspiration. This light was the hope of the survivors, Judy Cohen and Pinchas Gutter, who accompanied us on our trip. They believed that WE could continue to shine a light on their experiences. That the group could fight back against those spreading hate and disinformation. That we would continue the legacy of “Never Forget”. From darkness comes light. While we mourn the loss of Jenn, this scholarship aims to keep her light shining. This scholarship will allow others to be the light.
