It is with deep sadness that the History Department announces that David Shneer, our beloved colleague and friend, has died. David was a remarkable person - he was the absolute model of an engaged scholar, he was a skillful and dedicated graduate mentor, he was an innovative undergraduate teacher with a devoted student following, and he was a campus leader and program builder of inestimable energy. His influence and impact stretched well beyond our department and our campus. He was a global leader in the fields of modern European and Jewish history as well as Jewish Studies, and he knew no barrier between academia and the many other communities to which he belonged and hoped to speak. He was a beautiful human being, and we will miss him tremendously.
