Holocaust survivor Luna Kaufman will share her harrowing story during a free student webinar offered through the National WWII Museum as part of International Holocaust Remembrance Day. The event takes place January 27 from 12:00-1:00 p.m.

Born in Krakow, Poland, Kaufman and her family were moved to the city’s ghetto after Nazi occupation. She was imprisoned in three different forced labor and concentration camps during the war. While Kaufman and her mother survived, her sister, father and most of the members of her extended family perished in the Holocaust. Students participating in the webinar will learn about Kaufman’s commitment to fighting prejudice and the importance of forgiveness, tolerance and inter-religious cooperation and understanding.

This webinar is recommended for middle school students. Teachers will receive curriculum materials related to the program upon registering.
