Michel Engu Dobbs Sensei, aka- NocanDo is a favorite target of pigeons. He never did much and is basically good for nothing, and loves that- along with his precious family.
Ginni Stern has been a Holocaust Educator, Hospice Trainer and Psychotherapist in Vermont for more than 22 years. She is the daughter of a Jewish Holocaust Survivor, and the half-sister of a gentle German man. For several years, Ginni was active in Dialogue Groups that brought together descendants of the Holocaust & the Third Reich, participating in her first German/Jewish Dialogue Group in 1995.
Because she has no family gravestones upon which to place a stone in the USA, she has returned to Poland each year since 1996, to Bear Witness at Auschwitz and place a stone into the Ash Pit at Birkenau. Ginni served the Auschwitz Retreat as USA coordinator for 6 years and as Council facilitator for about 12 years. Ginni has been actively envisioning the creation of Bearing Witness Retreats in Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Wounded Knee and Vietnam.
