 Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu mourned the passing of Nobel laureate Elie Wiesel on Saturday, saying that he "gave expression to the victory of the human spirit over cruelty and evil, through his extraordinary personality and his fascinating books."

Netanyahu said that "in the darkness of the Holocaust, in which our sisters and brothers were killed - six million - Elie Wiesel served as a ray of light and example of humanity who believed in the goodness in people."


The prime minister gave thanks that he had been blessed to have know Wiesel, and learned from him, personally.
