Elie Wiesel On Oppression

Elie Wiesel (September 30, 1928 – July 2, 2016) The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference. The opposite of beauty is not ugliness, it’s indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it’s indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, but indifference between life and death.

Elie Wiesel On Silence

Elie Wiesel (September 30, 1928 – July 2, 2016) I swore never to be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented. Jewish Holocaust 1941 — 1945
