Elie Wiesel's five-year-old grandson

Eliezer Wiesel was a Hungarian Jewish descent Romanian-born novelist, political activist, and Holocaust survivor. He was the author of over 40 books, the best known of which is Night, a memoir describing his experiences during the Holocaust and his imprisonment in several concentration camps. The Norwegian Nobel Committee called him a "messenger to humanity," noting that Wiesel delivered a powerful message of "peace, expiation and human dignity" ... to humanity through his struggle to come to terms with "his own personal experience of total humiliation and utter contempt for humanity shown in Hitler's death camps."READ MORE

There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest.

The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference.

Then came the march past the victims. The two men were no longer alive. Their tongues were hanging out, swollen and bluish. But the third rope was still moving: the child, too light, was still breathing...
And so he remained for more than half an hour, lingering between life and death, writhing before our eyes.
And we were forced to look at him at close range. He was still alive when I passed him. His tongue was still red, his eyes not yet extinguished.
Behind me, I heard the same man asking:
"For God's sake, where is God?"
And from within me, I heard a voice answer:
"Where He is? This is where--hanging here from this gallows..."
That night, the soup tasted of corpses.

For the dead and the living, we must bear witness.

When a person doesn’t have gratitude, something is missing in his or her humanity. A person can almost be defined by his or her attitude toward gratitude.

Whoever survives a test, whatever it may be, must tell the story. That is his duty.
