Summary
The Art of Inventing Hope offers an unprecedented, in-depth conversation between the worlds most revered Holocaust survivor, Elie Wiesel, and a son of survivors, Howard Reich. During the last four years of Wiesels life, he met frequently with Reich in New York, Chicago and Floridaand spoke with him often on the phoneto discuss the subject that linked them: Reichs father, Robert Reich, and Wiesel were both liberated from the Buchenwald death camp on April 11, 1945. What had started as an interview assignment from the Chicago Tribune quickly evolved into a friendship and a partnership. Reich and Wiesel believed their colloquy represented a unique exchange between two generations deeply affected by a cataclysmic event. Wiesel said to Reich, “Ive never done anything like this before,” and after reading the final book, asked him not to change a word. Here Wieselat the end of his lifelooks back on his ideas and writings on the Holocaust, synthesizing them in his conversations with Reich. The insights on life, ethics, and memory that Wiesel offers and Reich illuminates will not only help the children and grandchildren of Holocaust survivors understand their painful inheritance, but will benefit everyone, young or old
