We remember Professor Liviu Librescu who became a national hero during the Virginia Tech shooting in 2007. He blocked the door so that his students could escape to safety, a great act of bravery.
Professor Librescu was born in Romania on this day in 1930. As a boy, he saw the evils of the Holocaust and later lived under communism. He came to the US in 1978.
What a great man and hero.
