i was a colleague and a friend of Lustig ,his wife Vera , his daughter ,and I know also his son. A great loss to humanity in general and to his friends who adored him ,for optimistic vision ,warmth ,modesty and a great sense of humor in spite of his horrible experiences, He just loved people from any background !!!!

I was one of Arnost's students at American University and he was not only extremely kind and humorous, but also very supportive of his students' efforts. He even told me: "one day you will belong to the big family of writers." (Mircea Bumbesti)

Having just learned of Professor Lustig's death I was saddened. He brought light to a subject that was shunned by many and taught us all to open our eyes and see what was truly going on around us. I was just one of his many students at American University in the mid-80's and remember him fondly. I wish his family health and a long life filled with fond memories of this very special man.

Ah, Fighter, you knew you lived for greater reasons than can be understood.
You said you gained a realization in the dark days in camp;
You learned that morality is black and white.

You also said you asked a great French writer in Theresinstadt what it took to be a writer,
And he told you.
You're insight elevated your soul,
And the French man gave you wings.

It is a tribute to the power of mankind that you forged gold from lead;
You have given mankind great insight, gained in the horrors of deplorable actions by your fellow man.
I still heed to your advice
And as with morality -that butterfly fluttering above the great ocean- I know never to rest.
