FAU’s eminent scholar Alan L. Berger, Ph.D., holds the first Holocaust chair established

in Florida, impacting the region for decades with his research and teaching, and is a vital

part of the future Kurt and Marilyn Wallach Holocaust and Jewish Studies Building on FAU’s Boca Raton campus. Berger serves as a judge for the Elie Wiesel Foundation for Humanity “Ethics Essay” contest open to university juniors and seniors.


Join Berger, Ph.D., as he talks about the life and experiences of Elie Wiesel, a Jewish prisoner

who survived concentration camps, who he has interviewed on several occasions. Wiesel, an Romanian-born American writer, political activist and Nobel Peace Prize laureate, was named “the most important Jew in America,” by Los Angeles Times in 2003. As a founding board member of the New York Human Rights Foundation, Wiesel’s life’s work helped:

• Condemn genocide

• Defend human rights and embrace all repressed peoples and races

• Establish the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C.
