Klaus Luhmer, a professor emeritus at Sophia University and historian of Western pedagogy, died of pneumonia Tuesday at a Tokyo hospital, the university said Wednesday. He was 94.

Born in Germany, he stayed in a suburb of Hiroshima when the city was hit by the U.S. atomic bomb on Aug. 6, 1945, and continued sharing his experiences at that time with students.
