Elie Wiesel was born in Romania before World War II. He was deported to Buchenwald, and was the only one in his family to survive. Wiesel has spent much of his career memorializing the horror of the Holocaust, beginning with the publication in 1958 of the French-language version of his book "Night." He will be the guest of honor at the Adelson Educational Campus's 8th Annual In Pursuit of Excellence Gala. We talk to him about the significance of the Holocaust and his work.
