A Christian Perspective on Persecution From the Holocaust to the Present
Saturday, September 13, 7:00 p.m. in Third's Fellowship Hall (600 Forest Ave, 23229)
Featuring Dr. Susanna Kokkonen, Director of Christian Friends of Yad Vashem at The Jerusalem Holocaust Education Center in Israel.
Dr. Kokkonen will impart something of the suffering, something of the sustaining faith, and something of the call God has placed in each one of us to not be silent in our time and age.
Additionally, she will provide timely observations about the current persecution of Christians in Syria and Iraq and the conflict between Israel and Gaza.
Dr. Kokkonen travels around the world to speak to Christian, Jewish and Civic audiences about the Holocaust, anti-Semitism, and Israel. Fluent in six languages, she is skilled in presenting difficult content in a way that touches hearts and inspires positive action and reconciliation between people and the past.
