This is a 105-minute documentary directed by Judit Elek in 1996.
Elie Wiesel was a Romanian-born American Jewish writer, professor, political activist, Nobel Laureate and Holocaust survivor.
Involved with Jewish causes, he helped establish the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C.
In his political activities he also campaigned for victims of oppression in places like South Africa and Nicaragua and genocide in Sudan.
He publicly condemned the 1915 Armenian genocide and remained a strong defender of human rights during his lifetime.
Wiesel was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1986.
Although slow-paced, it is a thought-provoking documentary.
