ELIE WIESEL: An Extraordinary Life and Legacy
Monday, April 29, 1:30 p.m.
Elie Wiesel is best known as the author of Night, a survivor of Auschwitz, and a powerful, enduring voice of the Holocaust. A recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize and the Presidential Medal of Freedom, he was a hero of human rights. To Nadine Epstein, he was also a mentor and a friend. In her new book, Epstein takes a closer look at his legacy, and shares her personal memories, and those of his son and others. Ted Koppel writes, “[Wiesel] performed the alchemy of converting pain, injustice and horror into love, compassion and tolerance. We remember him not so much because he so often succeeded but because he never stopped trying.”
