Alfred Diamant, the Viennese son of a Jewish merchant couple, lost most of his
family during the Holocaust. Forced to flee in 1940, Diamant became a lieutenant
for the 82nd Airborne Division, only to be captured and shot behind
enemy lines during the D-Day invasion. Denied the right to attend university in
Austria, he made up for lost time, completing two degrees at Indiana University
and a Ph.D. at Yale, concentrating on French public administration.
