1. Elie Wiesel (1986) Marker
Inscription.  Eliezer "Elie” Wiesel was a writer, professor and survivor of the Holocaust. His writings on the Holocaust helped the deepening understanding of the tragic event across the world. As a human rights activist, he worked for better treatment for all people persecuted or suffering from inhumanity. In 1986, Wiesel received the Nobel Peace Prize for speaking out against violence, repression and racism.

Mankind must remember that peace is not God's gift to his creatures; peace is our gift to each other.
