Ariel Burger first met Elie Weisel at age fifteen, he became his student in his 20s, and his teaching assistant in his 30s. Based on twenty-five year’s worth of journal entries, five years of classroom notes, and interviews with Elie Weisel’s students from all over the world, this profoundly hopeful, thought provoking, and inspiring book takes us into Wiesel’s classroom, where the art of listening and storytelling conspire to keep memory alive. Burger gives us front-row seat to these remarkable exchanges.
This program is in memory of Molly Burack and is made possible through the generosity of her children. Molly was a beloved volunteer at JCC MetroWest for over 30 years.
