Elie Wiesel: Confronting the Silence | A Conversation with Author Joe Berger

Thursday | June 8 | 5:00 PM ET

On Thursday, June 8 at 5 PM ET, you’re invited to join us for a special event featuring Joe Berger, whose new book, Elie Wiesel: Confronting the Silence, debuted on May 23.

Drawing from Wiesel’s writings and interviews with his family, close friends, scholars, and critics, this new text presents Wiesel as both a revered Nobel laureate and a man of complex psychological texture and contradictions.

Join us!

Alana Newhouse, editor-in-chief of Tablet Magazine, will interview the author and lead a discussion on his new book and the impact of Elie Wiesel and Holocaust education in today’s world.
