Summary

Summary

This one-hour PBS documentary is a visual biography of Nobel Prize-winning author, Holocaust survivor, and human rights activist Elie Wiesel. Much of the film is comprised of a journey taken by Wiesel to his home village of Sighet, Romania, from which he and the rest of the Jewish population were cold-bloodedly relocated to the infamous Auschwitz death camp in 1939. Also included are several interview segments, with Wiesel offering his observations on such current events as the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and the Israeli-Palestine war. In addition, the film offers rare photographs of pre-Holocaust Eastern Europe, and excerpts from Wiesel's heartbreaking memoir Night, read by actor William Hurt. Elie Wiesel was an offering of the recurring PBS series First Person Singular. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
