5/18/06: Elie Wiesel and Witnessing the Holocaust

Salt Lake City, UT – Author, political activist, humanitarian and Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel has said that "to remain silent and indifferent is the greatest sin of all ..." Ten years after being liberated from a concentration camp, he wrote the seminal work "Night," which bore witness to the horrors he had seen. The Nobel Peace Prize winner will be in Utah next week, and spoke with Doug Fabrizio about his writing, about memory and about God. Also joining us is Michael Berenbaum, who wrote "The Vision of the Void: Theological Reflections on the Works of Elie Wiesel."

Elie Wiesel will deliver the Tanner Lecture on Human Values at Snow College on Monday, May 22 at 7:00 p.m. in the Eccles Center for the Performing Arts on Snow's Ephraim Campus. Wiesel will also be presented with an Honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters. For more information, visit Snow College on-line
