What does this generation refers to?

Question on moody radio open line on Aug 7, 2016:

What does “this generation” in Luke 21:32 refers to?

Luke 21

32 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled.  -kjv

32 “Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened.  -niv

32 I assure you: This generation will certainly not pass away until all things take place.  -hcsb

Answer from Dr Rydelnik:

If you look at the context, it’s talking about the people who see the signs of the Son of Man coming and then it uses the parable of the fig tree. When the fig tree puts out leaves,  when you see these things you know that summer is already near. In the same way, when you see these things, the generation during the tribulation period, you know that Son of Man and the kingdom of God is near and so the generation you are talking about is the generation living through the tribulation and they will see the signs and they know that the Son of Man is coming.
