Join Joseph Berger, reporter and editor for The New York Times for over 30 years, for an intimate look at Elie Wiesel, author of the seminal Holocaust memoir Night and recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize.
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.
