Elie Wiesel (Modern Peacemakers) [図書館]

Heather Lehr Wagner




World-renowned writer, teacher, activist, and Chairman of the President's Commission on the Holocaust, Elie Wiesel won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1986. According to the Nobel Committee, "Elie Wiesel, with his message and through his practical work in the cause of peace, is a convincing spokesman for the view of mankind and for the unlimited humanitarianism which are at all times necessary for a lasting and just peace." This compelling "Modern Peacemakers" profile will help students learn why Wiesel "swore never to be silent whenever, human beings endure suffering and humiliation." Born in Romania in 1928, Wiesel and his family were deported to Nazi death camps when he was 15 years old. His mother and younger sister were soon killed; his father died in his arms. Wiesel was liberated by Allied troops and sent to a French orphanage, where he was reunited with two surviving older sisters. He resumed his studies and became a journalist and author. He is now an American citizen. Wiesel's haunting memoir, "Night", is a September 2006 Oprah Book Club selection.

When Elie Wiesel was 15 years old-- a sheltered, studious adolescent, his life changed radically. This was Hungary; its head of state was an Axis partner who had refused to turn over his Jews to Hitler, although Hungary had plenty of its own Nazis. Still, when the family was offered hiding by their faithful housekeeper, they politely refused her help; his father thinking that the trouble would pass and the war would soon be over. Not soon enough, for the Hungarians, although the last to die, were shipped to the slave labor and killing camps as fast as Eichmann could manage it. Several of Wiesel's family members were killed immediately. Wiesel spent 11 months at Auschwitz, where he experienced torture, abuse, violence and where his father died. It took 10 years, however, for Wiesel to write about his experiences in the famous memoir, Night. Since then, Wiesel has found his métier as a spokesperson against injustice, serving as a powerful voice for victims of racism, hatred and repression throughout the world. He has been chairman of the President's Commission on the Holocaust and a winner of the Nobel Prize. What is exceptional about this book is that not only does it cover all of Wiesel's accomplishments but also contains a humanized portrait of the man, with a format that is attractive to young readers. The print is slightly larger; there is ample white space between lines, lots of photographs (both black and white and colored) with highlighted information set off by a different colored paper. There is also a prodigious amount of reference material listed: appendix, chronology, notes, bibliography, further reading and index. For ages 11-15.
