A Voice of Conscience: Honoring the Life and Legacy of Elie Wiesel
|Date||Tue, Oct 12, 6:00pm - 7:00pm|
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 in April. The Cathedral and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, in conjunction with the Elie Wiesel Foundation, celebrate Wiesel’s enduring impact as a survivor, teacher, and international voice of conscience.
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. Jon Meacham, the Cathedral’s canon historian, will host leaders across generations in a discussion about Wiesel and the continuing fight for religious freedom, interfaith understanding, and respect for our common humanity.
This program is free and open to the public in person or online; registration is required.
