Holocaust Survivor And Nobel Laureate Elie Wiesel Dead At 87

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad SadBookz

no title

The loss of a true legend and iconic author.

Elie Wiesel, a Holocaust survivor who also became a Nobel Laureate, has died at the age of 87, according to media reports.

Wiesel is best known for his groundbreaking work Night, a book describes the horrors he experienced as a Jewish survivor of the Nazi death camps of the Holocaust during World War II.

After he was liberated from those camps at the end of the war as a young man, he went around the world for the rest of his life — most notable in the United States, France, and Israel — to speak on behalf of victims of hate and persecution.

According to Wiesel's son, the author apparently died at his home in Manhattan. No cause was given.

Wiesel's death is a major event in global politics; even Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke after his death (below), releasing a statement:

What a heartbreaking time for Elizabeth Gilbert.

What's especially sad about this situation is that Jose was the inspiration for the character Felipe in Eat, Pray, Love — the incredible man Elizabeth's character meets in Bali after divorcing her first husband. The romantic scenario EXACTLY mirrored the author's real life and many fans thought the blonde had stumbled upon a perfect fairytale.

Unfortunately, things did not work out for E.G. like she had planned due to "very personal reasons". Check out the writer's disappointed post (below):

Jack Antonoff is standing by his lady Lena Dunham.

As you may recall, the Girls creator sparked controversy when one anecdote from her book, Not That Kind Of Girl, revealed she had once (as a child) examined her sister's vagina out of curiosity. While the book has been out for sometime now, it seems the memoir is still causing drama as the 30-year-old's boyfriend clapped back at one fan on Twitter who inquired about the story.
