March of Life in Guayaquil (Ecuador)

On 9 November 2016 the March of Life Guayaquil in Ecuador took place to mark the occasion of the commemoration of the 'Night of Broken Glass' or 'Pogrom Night'.

Jewish dances were performed in the city centre at the commencement of the march and posters were displayed giving information about the 'Night of Broken Glass'. In the district of Balerio Estracio an open-air event was held at a soccer field.

Philipp Bissegger, Event Organiser, explained what Anti-Semitism looks like today and how we as Christians can, and must, stand up against it.

Videos showing the stories of Holocaust survivors were shown at the end of the event, concluding finally with a joint prayer for Israel. The event organizers are excited to see the beginnings of the March of Life movement in Ecuador.
