Björn Krondorfer had been studying the Holocaust for 10 years before he made an important discovery: His father had been at a Jewish slave labor camp in German-occupied Poland at the same time as Edward Gastfriend, a Holocaust survivor Krondorfer had befriended in the United States.

German-born Krondorfer is the director of the Martin-Springer Institute at Northern Arizona University.
