Professor Librescu RIP

This is the notice on Virginia Tech site:

This is the tragic story of the Holocaust survivor:

Professor Liviu Librescu threw himself in front of the shooter, who had attempted to enter his classroom. The Israeli mechanics and engineering lecturer was shot to death, "but all the students lived - because of him," Virginia Tech student Asael Arad - also an Israeli - told Army Radio.
