An amazing memoir written by a man who has devoted his life to the idea that all people deserve respect. Humble and driven, Wiesel, especially in his later years,makes for the perfect role model. Play the Ramones Bonzo in Bitburg after that chapter on Bitburg. It will remind you how horrid that event was.

Such beautiful writing and insight into the human condition.
I don't agree with everything he says regarding world issues and politics, but I love his passion for pursuing justice and peace in the world.
