Elie Wiesel, Nobel Peace Prize laureate and renowned Holocaust survivor, dies at 87


Holocaust survivor, Nobel Peace Prize laureate, prolific author and outspoken activist Elie Wiesel died Saturday at the age of 87. Wiesel was perhaps best known for his major role in promoting Holocaust education, and for perpetuating the memory of the Holocaust in the post-World War II era with his memoir “Night,” based on his experience as a teenager in the Auschwitz concentration camp.



Praying for the repose of his soul & for his family.


May his soul rest in peace.


Oh, no!
I just met him in May in New York!!!
He was quite a man.



Praying for the soul of the departed…
