Björn Krondorfer

 

Posted: Wednesday, September 25, 2013 10:00 am

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. The institute was founded in 2000 by Doris Martin, a Holocaust survivor, and her husband, Paul, with the mandate of using the Holocaust as a starting point and raising awareness about hate ideology and genocide today.
