New England Revolution, Chelsea walk in remembrance of the Holocaust

The New England Revolution will host Premier League giants Chelsea in the "Final Whistle on Hate" friendly match on Wednesday at Gillette Stadium, intended to combat anti-semitism and hatred of all forms.

Ahead of the game, representatives from both clubs traveled to Poland recently, to participate in the International March of the Living, held on Holocaust Remembrance Day. They toured the Auschwitz concentration camp, a powerful memorial to one of the most tragic moments in human history.

This video features footage from that visit, with Revolution president Brian Bilello, announcer Brad Feldman, and former player Charlie Davies speaking about the experience. It also features former Chelsea manager Avram Grant speaking about his family's background, with a story of tragedy and the will to survive amid unimaginable circumstances.

Wednesday's "Final Whistle on Hate" friendly between the Revolution and Chelsea will kick off at 8 pm ET. Tickets are still available for sale, and if you can't attend in person, you can watch on FS1.
