Passing of Elie Wiesel

Elie Wiesel at Auschwitz-Birkenau (1990)

Forever will I see the children who no longer have the strength to cry. Forever will I see the elderly who no longer have the strength to help them. Forever will I see the mothers and the fathers, the grandfathers and grandmothers, the little school children…their teachers…the righteous and the pious…. From where do we take the tears to cry over them? Who has the strength to cry for them?

—Elie Wiesel, 1990 March of the Living
