Professor Liviu Libresco–a 75-year old Romanian-Israeli survivor of the Holocaust–used his body to block the classroom door and enable others to escape, sacrificing his life for those of his students.
Professor Liviu–Levi ben Isidore–and his wife Marlina emigrated to Israel from
Romania in 1978 and had been living in the U.S. for 22 years.
“May you be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.”
