Holocaust survivor and Nobel Peace Prize winner Elie Wiesel believes that the opposite of love is not hate — but rather, indifference.
At age 15, Elie Wiesel and his family were sent to Auschwitz concentration camp. Wiesel was separated from his mother and younger sister but remained with his father for another year. His father died in the last months of the war; his mother and youngest sister perished in the gas chambers.
A decade later, Wiesel recorded his experiences; Night was published in 1958. The success of this novel led Wiesel to write 35 additional works dealing primarily with Judaism, the Holocaust and the overall fight for morality among the races. For Night, Wiesel won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1986.
