Elie Wiesel is a Nobel Peace Prize winner, author, and political activist.
After being freed from Auschwitz by Allied troops, Wiesel moved to Paris and published his first book in 1958, Night , a memoir of his experiences in the concentration camps. It was followed by Dawn (1961) and Day (1962), as well as more than 30 other non-fiction and fiction works about his experiences, the Jewish people, and Israel.
