Liviu Librescu: An Example Of Mankind At It’s Best

BFD honors the memory of Liviu Librescu, 76, Holocaust survivor, husband, father, teacher, hero.

This was a man who survived arguably one of the worst eras in human history, who prevailed, who became educated, who contributed to the advancement of society, who gave back through his teaching, who, having a deep understanding of the value of life, jeopardized his own life, and in the process, made the ultimate sacrifice by placing his own body against a classroom door, protecting his students from a deranged gunman.

    What a waste. What sadness. And how tragic for Liviu Librescu to end up dying this way. He was a hero in the truest sense of the word.
