This lecture, dedicated to the memory of Elie Wiesel, will begin with a summary of his biography and the main features of Wiesel’s remarkable life. I will then discuss the key issues raised by his enormous and highly influential list of publications. Finally, I will conclude with more personal reminiscences of his political activity that, from the 1960s on, brought him into contact with almost all the major intellectual, spiritual and political figures in America, Western Europe and Israel, and gained him the Nobel Peace Prize in 1986. Through it all, no matter his fame, he remained a dedicated teacher to his students and a loyal and special friend.
