Elie Wiesel Is Dead

I think it appropriate to mention his passing on July 2,2016. Another voice now silent. Soon all those who survived will be gone. May he know peace.

    Brilliant human! And yes, it is a bit concerning that those generations of witnesses are quickly dwindling.

    South Florida where I grew up at one time had quite a few survivors. Very recently the Mayor of Sunny Isles was one of the twins that Dr Mengele experimented upon. Sunny Isles was a short drive away. Pardon my rambling on.

    OMG, how horrible! It's one thing to read about these sick, diabolical things in a history book or article, but to actually know one of the victims? It brings it all a bit too close to home, so to speak. I grieve for humanity! Has the mayor published his story anywhere?

    Thank you. I just checked it out on Amazon, reading some of the reviews. I don't think I have the stomach for it. Good for the authors, though, for telling their story! I shudder to think what could happen once all the survivors are gone, and no one is left to stand up and say " I was there. This happened to ME."

    Yes it is hard to read. The photos could well be the source of horrid dreams. When those that survived are gone the historical revisionists will face little challenge.
