FREE Student Webinar on the Holocaust
“The love of your hands stretched to us inspired us. It is by joining hands that we will lead a better world for generations to come.”
These timeless and inspiring words come from Holocaust survivor, Luna Kaufman. They also apply to her life’s work and mission as a tireless champion for inter-religious cooperation and tolerance. On International Holocaust Remembrance Day, this brave and motivating woman will be joining the Museum for a special and free webinar for teachers and students across the globe.
Luna will speak about her survival, perseverance, and commitment to bring people together to defeat hate and bigotry. Born in Krakow, Poland, Luna and her family were moved to the city’s ghetto after Nazi occupation. Eventually, she was imprisoned in three different concentration camps through the duration of the war. Kaufman and her mother survived, while her sister and father, in addition to most of the members of her extended family, perished in the Holocaust. As a charter member of the New Jersey Commission on Holocaust Education and author of Luna’s Life: A Journey of Forgiveness and Triumph, Luna is dedicated to fighting prejudice, and will impart on students critical messages of forgiveness and inclusiveness.
The webinar will take place on Tuesday, January 27th at 12:00PM CST. Students will be able to type in questions for Luna and the Museum Educators throughout the webinar. Teachers will receive curriculum materials after registering. If you are unable to watch live, or want to show the program to multiple sections or classes, a link to the recording will be sent to all registered teachers.
The program is filling up quickly, so register today!
