Your focus on kindness has deep, personal roots. Tell us a bit about your father and your experiences growing up.
DL/ My father was a Holocaust survivor. He was 9 years old when the war started, and wasn’t liberated from the Dachau concentration camp until he was 15. And when I was 9, he started talking to me about his experiences – which of course included some of the horrors he lived through and witnessed.
