For me, every hour is grace. And I feel gratitude in my heart each time I can meet someone and look at his or her smile.


We have to go into the despair and go beyond it, by working and doing for somebody else, by using it for something else.


I was very, very religious. And of course I wrote about it in 'Night.' I questioned God's silence. So I questioned. I don't have an answer for that. Does it mean that I stopped having faith? No. I have faith, but I question it.

Because of indifference, one dies before one actually dies.


Because I remember, I despair. Because I remember, I have the duty to reject despair.


Indifference, to me, is the epitome of evil.


I will say, with memoir, you must be honest. You must be truthful.


I would like to see real peace and a state of Israel living peacefully alongside a state of Palestine.

The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference.


Wherever men and women are persecuted because of their race, religion, or political views, that place must - at that moment - become the center of the universe.


Someone who hates one group will end up hating everyone - and, ultimately, hating himself or herself.


No human race is superior; no religious faith is inferior. All collective judgments are wrong. Only racists make them.


There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest.


We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.
