Summary
"[Elie Wiesel] taught at Boston University for nearly four decades, and with this book, Ariel Burger--devoted prot<U+00d4>eg<U+00d4>e, apprentice, and friend--takes us into the sacred space of Wiesel's classroom. There, Wiesel challenged his students to explore moral complexity and to resist the dangerous lure of absolutes. In bringing together never-before-recounted moments between Wiesel and his students, Witness serves as a moral education in and of itself--a primer on educating against indifference, on the urgency of memory and individual responsibility, and on the role of literature, music, and art in making the world a more compassionate place."--Dust jacket flap
