Historian Professor Michael Harsegor passed away Thursday at the age of 87.

The Romanian-born professor who taught at Tel Aviv University was best known for his talk radio show "History Hour" on Army Radio. The show ran for over two decades.

As well as being the author of many history books, Harsegor came up with the name for Kibbutz Zikim while in prison in Romania, by translating a quote from Pushkin into Hebrew.
