Lunas Life - As a child in the Holocaust, Luna Kaufman experienced horrors unimaginable to most adults.  Despite her trauma, she emerged committed to teaching forgiveness and reconciliation, and today she is a tireless champion of Jewish-Christian understanding owing in chief to the example set by Sister Rose Thering, a Catholic nun who led the fight to eliminate antisemitism from school textbooks.  Luna dedicates her life to educating children on the Holocaust.
