Elie Wiesel, the world’s most famous Holocaust survivor, will be interviewed in New York via video link-up from his birthplace in Sighet, Romania, by Jerusalem Post editor-in-chief Steve Linde on Sunday, May 11.
Wiesel, 85, will be asked about his childhood memories of the old Jewish ghetto in Sighet, Shoah education and his views on anti-Semitism, Israel and the world today following the inauguration on Saturday night of the “Holocaust Cellar” educational center in his pre-war home. “The opening of the Holocaust Cellar supports my life’s efforts to ensure that humanity never forgets the evil that took place there and throughout Europe,” Wiesel said ahead of the event.
The historic interview will be live-streamed on JPost.com at 4 p.m. and photographed by the Post
