Board President pays tribute to historian David Cesarani

Board President Jonathan Arkush paid this tribute to historian David Cesarani whose death was announced yesterday: “We are shocked and saddened to hear of the death of David Cesarani at the age of only 58. He was a giant in his field, producing ground-breaking work on Jewish history and the Holocaust and was also a pioneer in the field of Holocaust education for which the richly deserved the OBE he was awarded 10 years ago. Our thoughts go out to his wife Dawn and their children Daniel and Hannah.”
