Ariel Burger first met Holocaust survivor and Nobel Peace Prize recipient Elie Wiesel at age 15. They studied and taught together. Burger’s book Witness chronicles the intimate conversations between these two men over decades. Witness takes the reader into Wiesel’s classroom, where the art of listening and storytelling conspire to keep memory alive. Burger is a writer, artist, teacher, and rabbi whose work combines spirituality, creativity and strategies for social change.
