Interview on CBN

Dear Friend,

Welcome to my website where I would like to promote things that are important to me. After years of studying topics, such as the Holocaust and anti-Semitism, hope is what remains. Hope comes to us from action we take to help others, but also from the promises of the Bible.

For over ten years I had the honor to serve at Yad Vashem, The World Holocaust Remembrance Center in Jerusalem, Israel. In my role, I introduced many people to the world of hatred and Genocide. In addition to persisting anti-Semitism and racism, it is now clear that Christians too are increasingly a target of hatred. From 2018 on, persecution of Christians has been a major concern.

Hope is not just a feeling, but it is about giving opportunities, partnerships, and education. To that end, I have taken it upon myself to travel, speak and write and to connect people with projects.

In this world, there are also too many children, who suffer unjustly all over the world. That is why we would like to help in the slums of Kenya. For this we need your support.

Ultimately, God is the source of all hope, but He chooses to act through human-beings. That is why I invite you to join me and many others in our Journey of Hope.

Blessings,

Susanna

ENDORSEMENTS

As we journey through life we have the privilege and joy, once in a while, of meeting some remarkable people who, because of their humility and love for the God of the Bible, are quite unique and who by their gifts and calling are a huge blessing to the Body of Christ. Susanna Kokkonen is such a person. She is a highly qualified scholar, an accomplished linguist and a dedicated professional operative. 

Her work at Yad Vashem in Jerusalem over the past ten years has been recognized and highly esteemed by people all over the world.  Most of all, however, it is her Christian character that gives her credibility, power and influence everywhere she goes. Knowing her is a joy and a source of enrichment for one's own life.

I know many speakers over the years who educate, inspire & motivate but Dr. Susanna Kokkonen takes the audience experience to a whole new level with an encompassing depth of content and insight.

I have had the pleasure of working with Dr. Susanna Kokonnen in different Civil and Christian settings. Her speeches on the Holocaust, Genocide, anti-semitism, and Israel today have influenced leaders in many parts of the world.

Her passion for the subject matter is
infectious. In less than one hour, attendees gain a fresh perspective on the major issues.

In sum, it is my pleasure to give Dr. Susanna Kokkonen my highest recommendation as a
keynote speaker. She will deliver valuable information and analysis in an inspiring
and motivating manner.
