A Jewish Hero!

Virginia Tech University Prof. Liviu Librescu, described as a family man who once did research for NASA, sacrificed his life to save his students in the shooting rampage yesterday.

“When he heard the gunfire, he blocked the entrance and got shot through the door,” his daughter-in-law Ayala Schmulevich said.

“He realized he had to save the students,” she said. “That was the kind of man he was.”

The hero educator was beginning a class on solid mechanics when all hell broke loose on the second floor of Norris Hall. (full story here)

We should all be proud of this and the fact that he was a Holocaust survivor says so much more.
