Lubavitch Chabad Honors VT professor & Holocaust survivor Liviu Librescu

A memorial tribute in Wheeling Wednesday evening celebrated the heroic efforts of Holocaust survivor Liviu Librescu, 76, a Virginia Tech professor of engineering who died while trying to save the lives of his students back on April 16. The event was held at the Westin Chicago North Shore Hotel in Wheeling as part of Lubavitch Chabad of Illinois' 30th anniversary. Lubavitch Chabad is the largest Jewish organization in the world with roughly 4000 centers in more than 40 countries. The memorial tribute was accepted by Librescu's son, Aryeh Librescu, who flew in from Ra'anana, Israel, for the tribute. The younger Librescu said he was at work when he heard of the shootings.
