Cynthia Larsen serves as the Director of the Academic Support Center at Marin Catholic High School. She has a B.A. from the University of California, Berkeley and a J.D. from the University of California, Berkeley Law School. Just before her paternal grandfather passed away, he gave her a Yizkor book from his hometown of Rozniatow. Looking through the book as a thirteen year old, Cynthia found the faces of her family members who became martyrs to the Holocaust. One girl in the pictures reminded her of herself. Cynthia believes silence emboldens those who would harm others. She hopes by serving on the Farkas Center board she will encourage students to use their voices to protect those vulnerable to injustices derived from hate.
