The opposite of love isn't hate. It's indifference.
He is President of The Elie Wiesel Foundation for Humanity, an organization he and his wife created to fight indifference, intolerance and injustice. Elie Wiesel has received more than honorary degrees from institutions of higher learning. A young Jewish boy discovered the kingdom of night. I remember his bewilderment, I remember his anguish. It all happened so fast. The ghetto. The deportation.
The book titled Night by Elie Wiesel has had a profound effect on my views of the holocaust.

Thoughts that show us the way…
That night, however, when I opened my checkbook and read the little slip of paper that floated down onto my desk, those two events collided and took on a life of their own. Journeyer, you know how it is when something is hard or unknowingly causes conflict? You find ways to avoid it? Seems indifference difficulties are to me what technical difficulties are to an electronic network…. For the person like me who has empathic tendencies, who connects with life on a deeply spiritual level and senses the energy around her, indifference is a nemesis. For the first time in my life I have recognized an area where I have been slowly slipping into the abyss that is indifference…. Lucky for me and for all of you who see yourselves in this post, awareness of anything is half the battle.

Elie Wiesel was an extraordinary man who lived an extraordinary life. At the age of 15, he and his entire family were sent to Auschwitz, becoming part of the Holocaust, which took the lives of more than six million Jews. Initially Elie and his father were sent to a sub-camp of Auschwitz, a labor camp where they were forced to work under deplorable and nearly incomprehensible inhumane conditions. Wiesel also lost his mother and younger sister in the Holocaust. In he was freed from Buchenwald by the Allies, but he and his two older sisters were the only survivors in his family.
