Ariel Burger provides a fascinating look into the life and classroom of a monumental 20th-century thinker. Nobelist Elie Wiesel (1928–2016) was an adviser to world leaders and an activist who drew from his experiences surviving the concentration camps. His history is a unique backdrop for Burger’s analysis of politics, current events and the future. As Wiesel’s student and protégé, he provides a detailed guide to his mentor’s inspirational approach to life, thought, religion and unity. Wiesel said, “Listening to a witness makes you a witness.” With Burger’s insights, you become a witness, too. Readers seeking a moral viewpoint will find much to consider in this remarkable collection.
