Elie Wiesel Dies at 87

Elie Wiesel high res
Elie Wiesel, 1928 – 2016

 

The Salem Award Foundation mourns the loss of Holocaust survivor, Nobel laureate and person of integrity Elie Wiesel. His message against hatred and intolerance in all its forms will be remembered for generations to come.

We were honored deeply by Mr. Wiesel’s presence at the Salem Witch Trials Memorial dedication on August 5, 1992.
