Zeev Sternhell was born on April 10, 1935. He was Polish born hisrorian, political scientist, commentator on the Israeli Palestinian Conflict, and writer.
Zeev Sternhell was a leading Israeli expert in the study of fascism and a prominent voice in a fading Israeli left-wing which he lamented was too weak to overcome ultra-nationalism, died on Sunday on June 21, 2020 at the age of 85.
He died after a decline in his condition following surgery.
#ZeevSternhell death is a huge loss for history and for fascism studies. Glad to see @lemondefr recognise his contribution after his fraught and passionate relationship with #France.
