Portrait Elie Wiesel

Portrait Elie Wiesel Nobel Peace Prize Winner. Born in Romania and survivor of Auschwitz and Buchenwald (inter alia...). On the holocaust, he noted that this is one of the most well documented pieces of history, but that the awareness of this is in the "machine" and not always in the humane/people - hence the need to keep the memory alive so that we learn from history. As regards different peoples, cultures, religions, he believes in the mutual respect of the diversity, and does not believe that the dissolution of identity is the solution.
