This week in class, we’re reading "Elie Wiesel’s Remarks at the Dedication of Yad Vashem Holocaust History Museum" by Elie Wiesel.
In “Elie Wiesel’s Remarks at the Dedication of Yad Vashem Holocaust History Museum,” acclaimed author and Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel discusses the museum’s ability to memorialize the victims of the Holocaust and his hopes for its impact on the future.
