Elie Wiesel


A Tribute

Elie Wiesel
Holocaust survivor and Nobel Laureate

(September 30, 1928 – July 2, 2016)

On behalf of The Blue Card which serves Holocaust survivors in the United States, we mourn the passing of Holocaust survivor and Nobel Laureate, Professor Elie Wiesel, who has made an incredible impact on our world in his fight for freedom, justice and the memory of the Holocaust and its victims.

The Blue Card presented the Richard C. Holbrooke Award for Social Justice to Professor Wiesel on November 16, 2015 at the New York Public Library. It was a great honor to have known him.

May his words guide us all for generations to come. He continues to be an inspiration to us and we will carry on his work for Holocaust survivors knowing the difference he made for The Blue Card, Holocaust education and support.
