Elie Wiesel Net Worth: Produced Eliezer Wiesel in 1928 in Sighet, Maramatiel, Kingdom of Romania, Elie Wiesel has written 57 publications and is a Holocaust survivor. In 1944, those who have been Jewish and residing in Sighet were taken to Auschwitz Birkenau from the German military, including Wiesel and his whole family. The Germans tattooed his prisoner number, A 7713, on his left arm. Wiesel and his dad were separated from his mom and three sisters and sent to Auschwitz III-Monowitz to work. Following the war’s ending, Wiesel started working as a journalist, placing his Hebrew abilities to great use as a translator. It took nearly a decade for Wiesel to start writing about his encounters using the Holocaust, though he eventually written “As Well As the World Remained Silent” in Yiddish. It totaled about 900 pages and was later shortened to “La Nuit” in French and “Nighttime” in English. The publication has since become a “New York Times” bestseller with over six million copies sold in America alone. In the mid-’50s, Wiesel became a U.S. citizen and went on to compose dozens of publications. He won the 1986 Nobel Peace Prize because of his work to finish racism and violence. Wiesel is a political activist who champions causes supporting Israel, South African apartheid victims, and stopping the violence in Darfur. In 2006, he returned to Auschwitz within a section with “The Oprah Winfrey Show”. He and his wife, Marion, founded the Elie Wiesel Foundation for Humanity.

1[a happier time, 1957] I don't know if a Garden of Eden awaits adults in the hereafter. I do know, though, that there is a Garden of Eden for children here in this life. I know because I myself visited this paradise. I have just returned from there, just passed through its gates, just left the magical kingdom known as Disneyland. And as I bade that kingdom farewell, I understood for the first time the true meaning of the French saying 'to leave is to die a little' [partir, c'est mourir in peu'].
2I don't know how I survived. I was weak, rather shy. I did nothing to save myself. A miracle? Certainly not. If heaven could or would perform a miracle for me, why not for others rather more deserving than myself? It was nothing more than chance.
3[on arriving for internment at Auschwitz] Never shall I forget that night, the first night in the camp, which had turned my life into one long night, seven times cursed and seven times sealed.Never shall I forget that smoke. Never shall I forget the little faces of the children whose bodies I saw turned into wreaths of smoke behind a silent blue sky. Never shall I forget those flames which consumed my faith forever. Never shall I forget the nocturnal silence which deprived me, for all eternity, of the desire to live. Never shall I forget those moments which murdered my God and my soul and turned my dreams to dust. Never shall I forget those things, even if I am condemned to live long as God himself. Never.
4Take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.
