Elie Wiesel, 1928-2016

On November 6, 1973, Montrealers were fortunate to hear Elie Wiesel speak at Congregation Beth El, an event organized by the synagogue with the Jewish Public Library as part of the annual Jewish Book Month. The event was recently digitized and made available publicly as part of a project between the Jewish Public Library and the Yiddish Book Center.  You can listen to Mr. Wiesel’s lecture on the Internet Archives:

Tributes to this great humanitarian will be numerous and lasting and the JPL is so grateful to have had his voice as part of our story.
