Nobel Peace Prize winner Elie Wiesel says he is not bitter about losing his personal investments and millions of dollars of his foundation's money in Bernie Madoff's Ponzi scheme. Wiesel says hundreds of donations have helped his Foundation for Humanity stay active. The foundation promotes tolerance and equality to youth. Wiesel, a Holocaust survivor and the author of the memoir "Night," told The Associated Press on Thursday that he does not expect to recover any of the lost money. Wiesel, whose father was Hungarian, is visiting Hungary for the first time since the Holocaust.
