Re: Don Hirschhorn receives award from Yad Vashem #latvia

I would personally like to second what Barry writes. Don does a vast
amount of vital volunteer work behind the scenes and he never gets
credit because it is always behind the scenes. He is always coming
up with inventive and useful ideas for furthering research or
expanding knowledge, but he doesn't let it rest there: he
aggressively pursues his ideas until they become a reality. We all
owe Don Hirschhorn countless awards for the work that he has done and
continues to do on our behalves.
