Short biography
Elie Wiesel was born to a Jewish family in the small town of Sighet in northern Transylvania, then part of Hungary, now Romania. He was still a teenager when he was taken from his home and deported to the Nazi concentration camp at Auschwitz and then to Buchenwald. His memoirs of that experience are unforgettably recorded in NIGHT, which became a worldwide bestseller. Elie Wiesel was Andrew Mellon Professor in the Humanities at Boston University and founding chairman of the United States Holocaust Memorial Council. He won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1986.
