Thousands Turn Out to Protest Iranian Regime at United Nations
Elie Wiesel is a Nazi concentration camp survivor.
His parents and sister were murdered by the Nazis:
In 1944 the Nazis deported the Hungarian Jews to Auschwitz-Birkenau. Elie’s mother and a sister were murdered there; he and his father were sent to the attached work camp Auschwitz III Monowitz. In January 1945, the two were marched to Buchenwald, where his father died.
