 Early existence and experiences during the Holocaust

Wiesel was born in Sighet (today Sighetu Marmaţiei), Maramureş, Kingdom of Romania, to Shlomo and Sarah Wiesel. Sarah was the daughter of Dodye Feig, a Hasid and farmer from a nearby village. Elie Wiesel had 3 sisters: Hilda and Bea, who were elder than he, and Tzipora, who was the youngest in the family. Shlomo was an Orthodox Jew of Hungarian lineage, along with a shopkeeper who ran his own grocery shop. He was active and reliable within the community, and had invested a limited months in jail for having assisted Polish Jews who escaped to Hungary in the early years of the war. It was Shlomo who instilled a strong sense of humanism in his son, encouraging him to discover Modern Hebrew and to read literature, whereas his mom encouraged him to research Torah and Kabbalah. Wiesel has mentioned his dad represented reason, and his mom, belief (Fine 1982:4).

The town of Sighet was annexed to Hungary in 1940. Next Elie, his family and the rest of the town were placed in among the 2 ghettos in Sighet. Elie and his family lived in the greater of the 2, on Serpent Street. On April 19, 1944, the Hungarian authorities deported the Jewish community in Sighet to Auschwitz–Birkenau. While at Auschwitz the amount A-7713 was tattooed into his left arm, and became an avid smoker.

Wiesel and his dad were transmitted to the connected function camp Buna-Werke, a subcamp of Auschwitz III Monowitz. He managed to stay with his dad for a year as they were forced to function under appalling conditions and shuffled between focus camps in the closing days of the war. On January 28, 1945, only a limited weeks after the 2 were marched to Buchenwald and just months before the camp was liberated by the American Third Army on April 11, Wiesel's dad suffered from dysentery, starvation, and fatigue, and was later transmitted to the crematory. The last word his dad talked was “Eliezer”, Elie's name.

In 1948, Wiesel started studying strategy at the Sorbonne. During this time, Wiesel became associated with Irgun, a Zionist armed company in Palestine, and translated for its newspaper.

He wrote for Israeli and French magazines, including Tsien in Kamf (in Yiddish) and the French Jewish Magazine, L'arche. But, for 10 years after the war, Wiesel refused to write about or discuss his experiences during the Holocaust.
