Below is a recap of the March of the Living presentation that Mr. Margol attended.
A ceremony was held in Krakow, Poland, on April 18, 2012 at the Krakow Opera House on the eve of Holocaust Remembrance Day honoring members of the Allied Forces who liberated the concentration camps during WWII. Along with Holocaust survivors and thousands of students, American veterans in their late 80s and early 90s traveled to Poland to participate in the ceremony along with one Canadian who took part in the campaign in Western Europe.

They also participated in the March of the Living from Auschwitz to Birkenau. The annual March of the Living program brings thousands of young people from around the world each year on Holocaust Remembrance Day to Auschwitz-Birkenau to honor the memory of the victims of the Holocaust and to pledge to build a better world for all humanity.
