Elie Wiesel

On September 29, 1928, Eliezer “Elie” Wiesel was born on September 29, 1928 Sighet, Transylvania (present-day Romania). He was a
human rights activist and Nobel Peace Prize-winning author of more than 50 books – including one of my favorite books of all time “Night.” His book Night was an internationally acclaimed memoir based on his own personal experiences as a prisoner in the Nazi concentration camps of Auschwitz and Buchenwald during World War II.

If there is just one book that is a must read in your lifetime – I highly recommend Night. Its harrowing. Painful. But it’s worth it to read the personal story of Mr. Wiesel.
