Also, on May 1, the local commemoration was held at Temple Sinai. The keynote speaker at the commemoration was Dr. Bjorn Krondorfer, Director, Martin-Springer Institute, Endowed Professor of Comparative Religious Studies (Department of Comparative Cultural Studies) Northern Arizona University. 

Esther Finder explained, “Dr. Krondorfer, a German native, shared with the audience his experiences as a man of conscience who happened to be a child of perpetrators.” Esther is the president and founder of Generations of the Shoah.
