Dr. Gil Carl AlRoy was a professor of political science at Hunter College who wrote extensively about relations between Arabs and Jews in the Middle East. Dr. AlRoy, who was born in Chernovtsy, Rumania, twice escaped from Soviet troops when they occupied Chernovtsy in 1940. He later escaped from the Germans' Doaga concentration camp dressed as a German soldier. He emigrated to Israel and in 1954 came to the United States. He graduated from City College in 1959 and earned a doctorate in political science from Princeton University in 1961. Dr. AlRoy joined the faculty at Hunter College in 1963. His books included ''Behind the Middle East Conflict'' (1975), ''The Kissinger Experience'' (1975) and ''The Real Impasse Between Arab and Jew'' (1979). Henry Alfred Kissinger (born Heinz Alfred Kissinger; May 27, 1923) is an American statesman, political scientist, diplomat and geopolitical consultant who served as United States Secretary of State and National Security Advisor under the presidential administrations of Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford. A Jewish refugee who fled Nazi Germany with his family in 1938, he became National Security Advisor in 1969 and U.S. Secretary of State in 1973. For his actions negotiating a ceasefire in Vietnam, Kissinger received the 1973 Nobel Peace Prize under controversial circumstances, with two members of the committee resigning in protest. A practitioner of Realpolitik, Kissinger played a prominent role in United States foreign policy between 1969 and 1977. During this period, he pioneered the policy of détente with the Soviet Union, orchestrated the opening of relations with the People's Republic of China, and negotiated the Paris Peace Accords, ending American involvement in the Vietnam War.
