From the Facebook Page of General Colin L. Powell, July 2, 2016: Elie Wiesel, one of the greatest humanitarians of our time and a dear friend of mine has died. Holocaust survivor, Nobel Laureate, brilliant author, conscience of the world lived by the code "to forget the dead is akin to killing them a second time."
He also faithfully served on the Board of Visitors of the Colin Powell School at the City College of New York. He loved youngsters. He will be missed, but his spirit will live on.
Alma and I offer our deepest condolences to his wife Marion, son Elisha and their family.
