~ Elie Wiesel
Elie Wiesel was born in what is now Romania. During World War 2, he and his family were deported to German concentration and extermination camps, along with other Jews. After being liberated by Allied troops in 1945, he was taken to Paris where he worked as a journalist and studied at the Sorbonne. In 1958 he published La Nuit, a memoir of his experiences in the concentration camps. In 1986, he was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, “for being a messenger to mankind: his message is one of peace, atonement and dignity.” ( https://www.nobelprize.org/prizes/peace/1986/wiesel/biographical/) Wiesel authored 57 books before he passed away in New York, New York (USA) in 2016.
“We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.“
“The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference.“
“There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest.“
