Elie Wiesel, the renowned Holocaust survivor who wrote the powerful memoir “Night,” has died at the age of 87.
The Nobel Prize winner passed away on Saturday (July 2).
As a teenager, Elie and his family were forced into concentration camps during the Holocaust. His parents and younger sister all died, but he lived and went on to write his memoir in 1955.
Elie was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1986 for his work in speaking out against racism, violence, and repression.
We send our thoughts and condolences to Elie‘s loved ones during this difficult time.
