Jerusalem Holocaust museum Yad Vashem released a statement on the passing of Elie Wiesel on Sunday. "He was devoted to bearing testimony to the atrocities he witnessed, and did so through his exceptional talents both as a writer and as a gifted orator," wrote Chairman Avner Shalev.

Among his many achievements and contributions, "Wiesel worked closely together with Yad Vashem, the World Holocaust Remembrance Center, on many projects relating to Holocaust remembrance and education. He served as Vice Chairman of Yad Vashem Council and was involved in the planning of the Holocaust History Museum that opened in 2005 and the design of Yad Vashem's permanent exhibition "Shoah" in Block 27 at the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum," the statement said.
