Lecture by Dr. Bjorn Krondorfer, Director of the Martin-Springer Institute at NAU. A personalized talk on the effects of the Holocaust and war on German society, family and German post-war generations. It begins with the story the presenter’s family (including his father’s war experience as a 17-year old German soldier, in the vicinity of a Jewish slave labor camp in Poland), addresses more general themes in society, and concludes with brief remarks on the value of dialogue between the communities and individual affected by the traumatic memory of extreme (state-sponsored) violence.
