The Art Of Inventing Hope

Author(s): Howard Reich, Wiesel, Elie
A conversation between Holocaust survivor, Elie Wiesel, and a son of survivors, Howard Reich. Before Wiesel's death, they met frequently to discuss the subject that linked them: Reich's father and Wiesel were both liberated from the Buchenwald death camp on April 1945. From interview to friendship and partnership, their colloquy represented an exchange between two generations deeply affected by a cataclysmic event. Wiesel looks back on his ideas and writings on the Holocaust, synthesizing them in his conversations with Reich. The insights on life, ethics, and memory that Wiesel offers and Reich illuminates will help the children and grandchildren of Holocaust survivors understand their painful inheritance, and will benefit everyone, young or old.
