VT professor Liviu Librescu has been buried in Israel. He was awarded Rumania's highest medal.

Professor Librescu was commended by Traian Băsescu, the President of Romania, with the Star of Romania Order with the rank of Grand Cross, "as a sign of high appreciation and gratitude for the entire scientific and academic activity, as well as for the heroism shown in the course of the tragic events which took place on April 16th 2007, [...] through which he saved the lives of his students, sacrificing his own life."

I hope he is recognised further for his bravery.
