On May 4, UCSC professors Murray Baumgarten and Peter Kenez were invested in the Neufeld-Levin Holocaust Endowed Chair at Stevenson College. The investiture took place on Yom Hashoah, the day of remembrance for Holocaust victims observed around the world. Preceding the ceremony was a daylong conference on "Family Histories and the Holocaust" supported by the endowed chair, which Santa Cruz resident Anne Neufeld Levin established in 1995.
