Elie Wiesel—2006
After Oprah chose the Nazi death camp survival story Night by Elie Wiesel for her Book Club, she and the legendary author and humanitarian visited the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum in Poland. Inside one of the barracks at the prison, Professor Wiesel told Oprah about his memories of those who died here. "When I come here, I'm not really alone. I'm with you, but I'm not only with you," he said. "They are around us. ... I think of them all the time, but here even more so."
