Overview

"As a child in Sighet, as a young boy in Auschwitz, as a displaced person wandering through post-World War II Europe, as a young man at the beginning of his career as a writer, witness and human-rights activist, Elie Wiesel had haunting, often surreal encounters with a wide range of people - sages, mystics, teachers, and dreamers.

Overview

"As a child in Sighet, as a young boy in Auschwitz, as a displaced person wandering through post-World War II Europe, as a young man at the beginning of his career as a writer, witness and human-rights activist, Elie Wiesel had haunting, often surreal encounters with a wide range of people - sages, mystics, teachers, and dreamers. In Legends of Our Time, he shares with us some of their stories." On a Tel Aviv bus, Wiesel encounters a notorious Auschwitz barracks chief who forces him to confront past demons that he thought had long since been laid to rest. While traveling through Spain, he is approached by a young Catholic man holding an ancient family document in an unfamiliar language; written in Hebrew in 1492 by the man's Marrano ancestor, it proudly proclaims to future generations the family's Jewish origins. Twenty years after being deported from Sighet, Wiesel returns to discover that the only things missing are the town's 10,000 Jews and the collective memory of their ever having existed. In a Moscow synagogue in the fall of 1967, Wiesel finds a sanctuary filled with young Jews who have miraculously educated themselves in their history and ancient language, who sing Hebrew songs in the street at KGB agents take down names. And from a rabbi in Auschwitz who fasted on Yom Kippur, Wiesel learns that there is more than one way to confront a God who seems to have abandoned His people.
