Elie Wiesel, 1928-2016

“Elie Wiesel, Nobel Peace Prize winner, died Saturday at his home in Manhattan at the age eighty-seven. Best known for Night, an autobiographical account of his experience in Nazi concentration camps toward the end of World War II, Wiesel, ‘more than anyone else, seared the memory of the Holocaust on the world’s conscience,’ wrote the New York Times.”
