Elie Wiesel born in Romania, September 30, — died in New York July 2, is widely known as an American-Jewish writer, author of 57 books, professor and political activist, and one of the most famous Auschwitz survivors.

Wiesel and his father were the only ones in the family to be spared, as they were fit for labor.

Sadly, his father was beaten to death shortly before the camp was liberated, and Elie was unable to help him.
