The experts were: Manuela Achilles, associate professor of German history, William Hitchcock, the William W. Corcoran Professor of History, Edith Clowes, the Brown-Forman Professor in the Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures; Jeffrey Rossman, the director of UVA’s Center for Russian, East European and Eurasia Studies; Philip Zelikow, the White Burkett Miller Professor of History, assistant professor of history Kyrill Kunakhovich, Philip Potter, director of the National Security Policy Center and Todd Sechser, a professor of politics and public policy.

A student-organized vigil was held on March 3 in UVA’s McIntire Amphitheatre.
