In Memoriam: Yehuda Nir

It is with great sadness that the GW Libraries acknowledge the passing of Dr. Yehuda Nir. Dr. Nir was a well-respected psychiatrist with a specialty in counseling patients with post-traumatic stress disorder. His life as a Holocaust survivor moved him to pursue this line of work and inspired him to write The Lost Childhood: The Complete Memoir, which details the years that Nir and his family spent seeking safety from Nazi persecution.

Dr. Nir and his wife, Dr. Bonnie Maslin, a GW alumna and member of the GW Libraries Development Advisory Council, have been longtime supporters of the Kiev Judaica Collection and an exhibit hall in Gelman Library bears their name.  The GW Libraries remain inspired by Dr. Nir’s resilience, determination, and commitment to making a difference in the world.  Read more about Dr. Nir in the New York Times article celebrating his life.
