In recent years the level of racist discrimination, exclusion and nationalistic tendencies have increased dramatically. This manifests in the appearance of these views in the political arena, but also in the media and in much broader sections of society. In recent years violent acts motiated by such mentality, and militant groups appeared. March for Life was a demonstrative action on the 70th anniversary of the deportations of Hungarian Jews an mass. The participants walked the routes of the "former" death marches on foot, in the form of a pilgrimage. Hungarians joined a large group of German youth who are direct descendants of former nazi perpetrators. The Hungarians joined them in their message regarding the vital necessity of telling the truth about the past actions of former generations, and express apology where it was due. The participants were Holocaust surviors and their descendants, school students from secondary schools, Hungarian civil and Christian church communities.
