I did not like the new way of screening questions. I really think we should go back to the privious way of having microphones up front, it engages the audience better and makes for a generally better Q&A

Peter was an amazing speaker. With his photos, I was able to picture the events he talked about. Listening to a survivor from a country that was not Germany, gave me an even bigger picture of the inhumane way Jewish people were treated. With the knowledge we have today of the cruel and inhumane way people of past generations treated each other, we should make sure that we NEVER treat each other with anything else but kindness, respect and above all LOVE!!
