As a child in Sighet, as a young boy in Auschwitz, as a teenage displaced person wandering through post-World War II Europe, as a young man at the beginning of his career as a writer, witness, and human-rights activist, Elie Wiesel had haunting, often surreal encounters with a wide range of people—sages, mystics, teachers, and dreamers. In Legends of Our Time, he shares with us some of their stories.
