Elie Wiesel, renowned author and Nobel Peace Prize winner, is a well-known voice for tolerance and justice worldwide. Wiesel spent part of his childhood in the Auschwitz concentration camp. He survived his time at Auschwitz, but lost both of his parents and his younger sister. Wiesel wrote about his memories from the Holocaust and eventually published them in “Night,” his critically acclaimed memoir. Since its publication in 1960, “Night” has become an international bestseller translated into 30 languages. Wiesel has written more than 50 fiction and non-fiction books and established the Elie Wiesel Foundation, which combats intolerance and promotes understanding in countries around the world. He also teaches at Boston University.
