Prof. Hillberg was my teacher at the University of Vermont in 1961-62. I recall him with much fondness. He was a terrific teacher as all who took his political science class would attest. A private man, I would often see him at the movies sitting alone. He awoke us all to the horrors of the holocaust which untill his book and the Eichmann trial, the word holocaust was never associated with the destruction of European Jewry. The Jewish family has lost one of its great men.
