The Rodgers Center for Holocaust Education
presents, Dr. Alan Rosen (
The Wonder of Their Voices: The 1946 Holocaust Interviews of David Boder
) on Tuesday, October 27, 2015 – To Capture the Fire: The Life and Works of Elie Wiesel at 4 p.m. in Beckman Hall 404.
In this lecture, Dr. Rosen, who has written extensively on the life and writing of Elie Wiesel, explores a theme central to many of the Nobel Peace laureate’s works, that of becoming a “soul on fire.” Drawing upon Chasidic tradition and masters, Professor Wiesel counters the enveloping fire of the Holocaust with the visionary fire of the Jewish tradition. Dr. Rosen will discuss how capturing the fire becomes a means of transforming the evil of the Holocaust – and, in the end, transforming our world as well.
This event is free and open to the public.
