Elie Wiesel survives Madoff wipeout, heart bypass
Question of the Day
And yet, in the end, Wiesel says he believes in human redemption, to be explained in the next of his more than 50 books. He won’t reveal more details of the novel, titled “Redemption”; he never does, till it’s done.
On most days, he writes for four hours, starting at about 5 a.m., when he rises after only four hours of sleep.
His goal “for the last 20 years of my life” has been to fight racism and hatred by organizing global gatherings with high-power participants.
Obama’s inauguration was “one of the most joyous days of my life, because my people, the American people, showed they could overcome a disease _ hatred because of color.”
Someday, Wiesel says he believes his grandchildren will “applaud the first Jewish president in America.”
