Nobel Peace Prize Winner, Elie Wiesel Dies At 87

Elie Wiesel, Nobel Peace Prize laureate, award-winning author and Holocaust survivor has died at 87.  Born in Romania in 1928, Wiesel was forced into Auschwitz as a teenager. After watching his father, mother and younger sister die, he wrote his now-highly acclaimed autobiography, Night in 1955. 

Night introduced millions of school children to a vivid, horrific account of the Holocaust from the eyes of a survivor. To date, it has sold over six million copies, as reported by the Israeli newspaper Haaretz which first announced Wiesel's death. 

When he received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1986, the Norwegian Nobel Committee wrote that he was a "messenger to mankind" who delivered a message of "peace, atonement and human dignity."
