Liviu Lebrescu, 1930–2007

A Holocaust survivor originally from Romania, Dr. Liviu Lebrescu gave his life to save his students during the massacre at Virginia Tech, blocking the door to his classroom with his own body to prevent the murderer from forcing his way in.

Both Meryl Yourish and Elisson have written must-read pieces about him and his final act of rescue.

May Dr. Lebrescu’s soul be bound up in the bond of eternal life, together with the souls of the other victims.
