Liviu Librescu, senior researcher and lecturer in engineering at Virginia Tech, killed while blocking the classroom door from the murderer, was laid to rest today in Israel.

A Holocaust survivor who left Romania for Israel and then the United States. Killed saving the lives of his students. May his memory live forever. May his rest be peaceful and never alone.
