Publisher's Summary

The world remembers Elie Wiesel - Nobel laureate, activist, and author of more than 40 books, including Oprah's Book Club selection Night - as a great humanist. He passed away in July 2016.

Ariel Burger first met Elie Wiesel at age 15. They studied together and taught together. Witness chronicles the intimate conversations between these two men over decades as Burger sought counsel on matters of intellect, spirituality, and faith while navigating his own personal journey from boyhood to manhood, from student and assistant to rabbi and, in time, teacher.

In this profoundly hopeful, thought-provoking, and inspiring audiobook, Burger takes us into Elie Wiesel's classroom, where the art of listening and storytelling conspire to keep memory alive. As Wiesel's teaching assistant, Burger gives us a front-row seat witnessing these remarkable exchanges in and out of the classroom. The act of listening, of sharing these stories, makes of us, the listeners, witnesses.

Touching and enlightening

This is one of those books you will not want to stop listening to until it’s over! The content was extremely engaging and I not only learned so much but was also extremely touched time and time again. A must read/listen!

Too much Ariel Burger, not enough Elie Wiesel

Author spends way too much time talking about his own life and challenges and superfluous information from classroom excerpts. I was expecting a lot more of Elie's wisdom. Slow reading, sounds find at 1.25X.
