BOSTON (AP) - An exhibit dedicated to the life and work of Nobel laureate Elie Wiesel is set to open at Boston University.

Visitors to the exhibit at the Howard Gotlieb Archival Research Center will see Wiesel’s papers, manuscripts and awards, including his Nobel Peace Prize. Wiesel’s archive is housed at BU, where he taught for many years and is a professor emeritus.

Wiesel is a writer, teacher and activist known for his memoir “Night,” in which he recounts his experiences surviving the Holocaust. He won the peace prize in 1986.

He is expected to speak at the exhibit opening and reception Sunday afternoon.

“Champion For Human Rights: The Life and Work of Elie Wiesel” is free and open to the public.
