Elie Wiesel Quote

I didn't want to write a book on the Holocaust. To write such a book, to be responsible for such experiences, for such words — I didn't want that. I wanted to write a commentary on the Bible, to write about the Talmud, about celebration, about the great eternal subjects: love and happiness.
