Celebrating life and interfaith friendship - WIHW event from Germany


Life is mysterious and beautiful. Our Earth is home to people of many cultures and faiths, and I find it particularly interesting when persons cross frontiers, transcend boundaries and build bonds with fellow humans from very different cultures and backgrounds. All the more remarkable, when that person is a woman, acting against the odds and conventions of her time.
