All Rivers Run to the Sea: Memoirs
by Elie Wiesel
Translated by: Jon (French) Rothschild

Pub. Date: November 1995, Publisher: Random House
ISBN: 0679439161
The long-anticipated memoirs of the novelist and Nobel Peace Laureate Elie Wiesel. Torn from a traditional and loving Jewish family life in a Carpathian mountain village and dragged through the horrors of Auschwitz and Buchenwald, Elie Wiesel emerged a bloodless adolescent, a mute spirit, with no homeland. In this passionate, poignant, and inspiring look back at those years and what followed, his remarkable life unfolds. At war's end -- a French orphanage, a new language and culture; a struggle with his G-d; a search for love despite human evil; reunions with family survivors; the influence of Jewish scripture, mystics, Golda Meir, Ben-Gurion; a deep devotion to Israel, a mission to chronicle its birth and formative years; finding, at last, his voice as witness for martyrs and survivors alike.
And The Sea Is Never Full - Memoirs, 1969
by Elie Wiesel
Illustrated by: Marion Wiesel

Pub. Date: November 1999, Publisher: Random House
ISBN: 067943917X
As this concluding volume of his moving and revealing memoirs begins, Elie Wiesel is forty years old, a writer of international repute. Determined to speak out more actively for both Holocaust survivors and the disenfranchised everywhere, he sets himself a challenge: "I will become militant. I will teach, share, bear witness. I will reveal and try to mitigate the victims' solitude." He makes words his weapon, and in these pages we relive with him his unstinting battles. We see him meet with world leaders and travel to regions ruled by war, dictatorship, racism, and exclusion in order to engage the most pressing issues of the day. We see him in the Soviet Union defending persecuted Jews and dissidents; in South Africa battling apartheid and supporting Mandela's ascension; in Cambodia and in Bosnia, calling on the world to face the atrocities; in refugee camps in Albania and Macedonia as an emissary for President Clinton. He chastises Ronald Reagan for his visit to the German military cemetery at Bitburg. He supports Lech Walesa but challenges some of his views. He confronts Francois Mitterrand over the misrepresentation of his activities in Vichy France. He does battle with Holocaust deniers. He joins tens of thousands of young Austrians demonstrating against renascent fascism in their country. He receives the Nobel Peace Prize. Through it all, Wiesel remains deeply involved with his beloved Israel, its leaders and its people, and laments its internal conflicts. He recounts the behind-the-scenes events that led to the establishment of the Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C. He shares the feelings evoked by his return to Auschwitz, by his recollections of Yitzhak Rabin, and by his memories of his own vanished family. This is the magnificent finale of a historic memoir.

In praise of Elie Wiesel's All Rivers Run to the Sea "Part of the delight of All Rivers lies in witnessing the gradual transformation of the brokenhearted, orphaned young boy into the spirited journalist who longs to embrace the world at large, and who, in time, does." --Rebecca Goldstein, Newsday

"Immensely moving [and] unforgettable, [with] the searing intensity of his novels and autobiographical tales . . . Will make you cry, yet somehow leaves you renewed, with a cautious hope for humanity's future." --Publishers Weekly

"This is Elie Wiesel at his best, a highly revealing self-portrait of the man behind the world-famed persona." --Herman Wouk

"Remarkable . . . Wiesel writes with poetic beauty and heart-stopping eloquence." --Susan Miron, Miami Herald

"A biblical-like epic of a great man who has turned genocidal tragedy into a life force for world peace. It should be required reading." --Alan M. Dershowitz

"For all those who have never known Elie Wiesel, these memoirs are an introduction to the man, and for many who have met him, there will be discoveries and realizations." --Raul Hilberg, Boston Globe

Imperfect Justice: Looted Assets, Slave Labor, and the Unfinished Business of World War II
by Stuart E. Eizenstat, Elie Wiesel (Foreword)
Pub. Date: January 2006, Publisher: PublicAffairs
ISBN: 1586482408
The U.S. official who spearheaded the fight to reclaim the stolen and confiscated assets of Holocaust survivors and other victims of World War II tells the inside story of that fight and how it was won.In the second half of the 1990s, Stuart Eizenstat was perhaps the most controversial U.S. foreign policy official in Europe. His mission had nothing to do with Russia, the Middle East, Yugoslavia, or any of the other hotspots of the day. Rather, Eizenstat's mission was to provide justice -- albeit belated and imperfect justice -- for the victims of World War II. Imperfect Justice is Eizenstat's account of how the Holocaust became a political and diplomatic battleground fifty years after the war's end, as the issues of dormant bank accounts, slave labor, confiscated property, looted art, and unpaid insurance policies convulsed Europe and America. He recounts the often heated negotiations with the Swiss, the Germans, the French, the Austrians, and various Jewish organizations, showing how these moral issues, shunted aside for so long, exposed wounds that had never healed and conflicts that had never been properly resolved. Though we will all continue to reckon with the crimes of World War II for a long time to come, Eizenstat's account shows that it is still possible to take positive steps in the service of justice.

The Abandonment of the Jews: America and the Holocaust 1941-1945
by David S. Wyman (Afterword), Elie Wiesel (Introduction)
Pub. Date: April 2007, Publisher: New Press
ISBN: 159558174X
A new paperback edition of the bestselling classic on America's response to the Nazi assault on European Jews.

The Abandonment of the Jews received enormous critical and commercial attention when it was first released in 1984, appearing on the New York Times bestseller list for five weeks as well as on its Best Books of the Year list. A selection of the History Book Club and the Jewish Book Club, it has sold over 100,000 copies in its various editions.

In this landmark work, David S. Wyman argues that a substantial commitment to rescue European Jews on the part of the United States almost certainly could have saved several hundred thousand of the Nazis' victims. Widely considered to be the definitive book on the subject, The Abandonment of the Jews won the National Jewish Book Award, the Anisfield-Wolf Award, the Present Tense Literary Award, the Stuart Bernath Prize from the Society for Historians of American Foreign Relations, and the Theodore Saloutos Award of the Immigration History Society, and was nominated for the National Book Critics Circle Award.

This new paperback edition includes a new preface by the author discussing the ongoing controversy aroused by the book since its original publication. Foreword by Elie Wiesel.

Dismantling the Big Lie: The Protocols of the Elders of Zion
by Steven Leonard Jacobs, Mark Weitzman
Pub. Date: September 2003, Publisher: Ktav Publishing House
ISBN: 0881257850
This is the first work that refutes, in a detailed and specific fashion, the claims made in the classic anti-Semitic forgery, The Protocols of the Elders of Zion. While other attempts have been made to explore the history or context of The Protocols, this work sets out the themes and claims of each of the 24 protocols, and then debunks them, protocol by protocol. Since the “protocols” claim to be exposing a hidden conspiracy rooted in Jewish tradition, the refutation is accomplished by showing how authentic Jewish texts and authorities have actually addressed these issues. The positions cited are drawn from the range of Jewish history and traditions. There are also chapters that explore current use of The Protocols of Zion by modern extremists, as well as the new life given to them by the internet. In addition to the introduction, there is also a thematic index.

Nazi Hunter: The Wiesenthal File
by Alan Levy
Pub. Date: September, 2002, Publisher: Carroll & Graf Publishers
ISBN: 078671090X
A gripping account of the life-long pursuit of justice by the man who declared "So long as the criminals are free, the war has not ended for me."

This is the remarkable story of a man who has become a legend in his own lifetime. Simon Wiesenthal spent four and a half years in Mauthausen concentration camp during the Second World War. With the exception of his wife, all his immediate family were exterminated, and he himself ended the war a living skeleton. Since then, he has achieved international renown for his tireless tracking down of Nazi war criminals -- including his capture of Eichmann, the "desk murderer" who masterminded Hitler's Final Solution, and Stangl the overlord of Treblinka -- and for his pursuit of Mengele of Auschwitz, the dreaded "Angel of Death". To this day his work continues, his motivation simply expressed in the words: "Justice, not vengeance."

The accounts of inspired detective work that lie behind Wiesenthal's successful apprehension of the fugitives reads as excitingly as any thriller, but Alan Levy's book is much more than that. It is an award-winning examination of the work of one of the greatest Jewish figures of the 20th century.

Includes 8 pages of b/w photographs and an index.

The Sunflower: On the Possibilities and Limits of Forgiveness
by Simon Wiesenthal
Pub. Date: April 1997, Publisher: Schocken/Random House; Revised edition
ISBN: 0805241450
While imprisoned in a Nazi concentration camp, Simon Wiesenthal was taken one day from his work detail to the bedside of a dying member of the S.S. Haunted by the crimes in which he had participated, the soldier wanted to confess to and obtain absolution from - a Jew. This unusual encounter and the moral dilemma it posed raise fundamental questions about the limits and possibilities of forgiveness. Must we, can we forgive the repentant criminal? Can we forgive crimes committed against others? What do we owe the victims? Twenty-five years after the Holocaust, Wiesenthal asked leading intellectuals what they would have done in his place. Collected into one volume, their responses became a classic of Holocaust literature and a touchstone of interfaith dialogue. This revised edition of The Sunflower includes 46 responses (10 from the original volume) from prominent theologians, political leaders, writers, jurists, psychiatrists, human rights activists, Holocaust survivors, and victims of attempted genocides in Bosnia, Cambodia, China, and Tibet. Their answers reflect the teachings of their diverse beliefs - Jewish, Christian, Buddhist, Muslim, secular, and agnostic - and remind us that Wiesenthal's question is not limited to events of the past.
