I would not have guessed that

Celebrity hairdresser Vidal Sassoon passed away today at the age of 84. I wouldn't normally bring that up, but there was some interesting information in his obituary:
A veteran of Israel's 1948 War of Independence, Sassoon also had a lifelong commitment to eradicating anti-Semitism. In 1982, he established the Vidal Sassoon International Center for the Study of Antisemitism at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
Huh. I guess you learn something new every day.
