Elie Wiesel (1928−2016) is best known as the author of Night, 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, professor and author of more than 50 books.
Among his accomplishments, Wiesel co-founded Moment Magazine with Leonard Fein in 1975 to be a place of conversation for America’s Jews. For editor-in-chief Nadine Epstein, he became a mentor and friend after she took over the magazine in 2004.
In this beautiful volume, Epstein shares her memories of Wiesel and brings together 30 plus interviews with friends, colleagues and others who knew him – including Ted Koppel, Kati Marton and Bernard Henri-Levy – plus photographs, speeches and articles to provide a fuller understanding of who he was and his legacy. Includes an interview with Wiesel’s son Elisha and an afterword by Lord Rabbi Jonathan Sacks.
A companion book for Night (with discussion questions) and gift book for readers of all ages.
