A new book, “Flagstaff Jewish Lives During and After the Holocaust and World War II,” offers a look at the city’s Jewish community from the 1930s to the 1950s. The book was researched and written by Bjorn Krondorfer, director of the Martin-Springer Institute at Northern Arizona University (NAU), and a group of NAU students turned historical sleuths. The book was released on May 11 at a launch party at Flagstaff’s Bright Side Bookstore. Jewish News spoke to Krondofer about the difficulties and surprises he and his team experienced as they pieced together this history of Flagstaff’s Jewish community. -Janet Perez
