Title: " Elie Wiesel "
This addition to the PERSPECTIVE series reveals how Eli Wiesel's experience of the Holocaust led him, as an author, teacher, and storyteller, to defend human rights and world peace. He won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1986 and founded the Elie Wiesel Foundation for Humanity. He is the author of more than 30 books on the subject of the Holocaust and human rights and has received many other honors and awards including the Presidential Medal of Freedom and the Congressional Gold Metal. In this interview, he discusses the need for young people to raise questions, to accept personal responsibility and to become more sensitive to the plight of others. The rise of fanaticism, hatred and racism in the United States can be confronted and opposed through peaceful protest and dialogue. He points to a continued need for the United States to intervene in foreign conflicts and believes that one of the most noble acts is to serve one's country in the cause of defending freedom and human rights.
