Professor David Cesarani
It is with great shock and profound sadness that the AJR has learnt of the sudden passing of Professor David Cesarani, a towering figure in the field of Holocaust studies.
Through his pioneering publications the world has gained a deeper understanding of the crimes committed by the Nazis. His work and endeavours will stand in perpetuity both as a rebuttal to the scourge of Holocaust denial but also as having empowered Holocaust refugees and survivors to give testimony.
He was a close colleague and will be forever remembered as an eminent academic and leading light. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.
