HRC Statement on Death of Elie Wiesel, Holocaust Survivor and Nobel Peace Prize Winner

by HRC staff July 02, 2016


Today, Chad Griffin, President of HRC,  released the following statement on the death of Elie Wiesel:

“After surviving the unimaginable horrors of the Holocaust, Elie Wiesel committed his life to stopping hate, violence and discrimination. He lent his powerful voice to the struggles of countless people across the globe, and advocated for all those oppressed by discrimination and targeted for violence. Today, we mourn the loss of a hero whose commitment to justice, equality and love above all has set an example for us all to follow."

Elie Wiesel survived Auschwitz and went on to become a prolific author, professor, and human rights advocate. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his work in 1986 and remained outspoken on human rights issues throughout his life, from apartheid in South Africa to the crisis in Darfur.
