Elie Wiesel: Confronting the Silence
Elie Wiesel seared the Holocaust into the world’s conscience and later spoke out against genocide everywhere. How did someone who grew up as a devout Hasidic boy in an obscure Hungarian village become the torchbearer for the survivors and an important moral voice on the world stage. Drawing from Wiesel’s writings and interviews with his family, close friends, scholars, and critics, Joseph Berger’s new book, Elie Wiesel: Confronting the Silence, seeks to answer this question and presents Wiesel as both a revered Nobel laureate and a man of complex psychological texture and contradictions.
