MONTREAL, Sept. 2 /CNW Telbec/ - The media are invited to an evening with
Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Elie Wiesel, the world-renowned human rights
activist, author and scholar.
Moderated by Rabbi Reuben Poupko of Beth Israel Beth Aaron Congregation
and Father John Walsh of St. John Brébeuf Parish, this sold-out event is an
unprecedented collaboration between the Jewish and Christian communities in
promoting awareness of human rights issues in Canada.
Born in 1928, Wiesel is the author of 57 books, including a memoir of his
imprisonment in concentration camps during the Holocaust. Wiesel's diverse
writings have made him a respected authority in areas such as literature,
theology, spirituality, human rights and international affairs. In 1986 the
Nobel committee that awarded Wiesel a Nobel Peace Price called him a
"messenger to mankind."
Sponsored by the Mike Dym Lecture Series, this event will feature
simultaneous translation in French and English.
