    Out of the horror of the Holocaust rose a single voice - one that would not be silenced, one that would not let the world forget. Elie Wiesel was just a teenager when he and his family were forced from their home in Sighet, Transylvania (now Romania) and sent to Auschwitz. Though he managed to survive the Nazi concentration camp, Elie lost more than half of his family there. After years of silence, Elie told his story of what happened in the death camps in his memoir Night. It was the first of many books written by the great humanitarian. Awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1986, Elie has dedicated his life to speaking out on behalf of those who are persecuted or oppressed. Lexile 830
