Unmasking Evil

Holocaust survivor and human rights advocate Elie Wiesel and broadcast journalist Soledad O’Brien explore the perils of indifference, the importance of memory, and the power of empathy. Wiesel describes the horrors of World War II as the result of a complete lack of leadership and argues that such evil must be identified encountered immediately if it is to be prevented. Inaction in the face of evil,Wiesel contends, has led to genocides in Rwanda, Darfur, and Cambodia. Despite these tragedies, Wiesel believes that humanity can attain justice, but the choice is entirely in the hands of individuals. Man is neither good or evil by nature, Wiesel explains—it is incumbent upon the choices of each individual.
