Walter Laqueur, Holocaust survivor who reinvented terrorism studies, dies at 97

Walter Laqueur, who survived the Holocaust to become a noted scholar on the subject of terrorism, has died at the age of 97.

He was born in Poland, and raised in Germany. His parents, who were killed in the Holocaust, sent him to Palestine in 1938.

After the war, Laqueur became the head of the International Research Council of the Center for Strategic and International Studies and wrote about terrorism, and fascism, including the classic A History of Terrorism, reports Alyssa Fisher for Forward.
