A Voice of Conscience: Honoring the Life and Legacy of Elie Wiesel Now Available to Watch


In case you missed it, a recording of A Voice of Conscience: Honoring the Life and Legacy of Elie Wiesel is now available to watch anytime and share.

To honor Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel’s legacy—defending human rights and combating indifference and intolerance—the Washington National Cathedral added a stone carving of him to its Human Rights Porch.

The Cathedral and the Museum, in conjunction with the Elie Wiesel Foundation, hosted leaders across generations in a discussion about Wiesel and the continuing fight for religious freedom, interfaith understanding, and respect for our common humanity.




At this time of rising antisemitism, racism, and group-targeted violence, a reminder of Wiesel’s commitment to the dignity of all people is both timely and necessary.
