Elie Wiesel (1928–2016)

Wiesel was the author of 57 books, a political activist, and a Holocaust survivor. Night, his succinct, powerful memoir about his experience in the death camps and its toll on his faith, has been published in more than 30 languages and has sold more than six million copies.

Karsh included the portrait he made of the prolific author in his book-lined study when he published American Legends in 1992. Wiesel had won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1986 and had achieved international fame as an advocate of human rights. He has continued to travel, lecture, and teach.
