Elie Wiesel, you will forever be missed, you’ve been a light in a world of unfathomable darkness.
Wiesel broke his silence on his Holocaust experience 10 years after the liberation with the acclaimed memoir “Night,” originally published in French as “La Nuit,” which has been translated into 30 languages and has sold millions of copies since its publication.
“If I survived, it must be for some reason,” Wiesel said in 1981. “I must do something with my life. It is too serious to play games with anymore, because in my place, someone else could have been saved. And so I speak for that person. On the other hand, I know I cannot.”
