Elie Wiesel, the Nobel laureate who died Saturday, was a Holocaust survivor who spent much of his career writing about the Holocaust and advocating for the preservation of its history. He was also, for decades, a faculty member at Boston University. In 1976, Wiesel became the Andrew W. Mellon Professor in the Humanities at BU, and he was also a member of the faculties in philosophy and religion.
While Wiesel has not been teaching regularly in recent years, BU in 2006 republished an article from Bostonia, the university's alumni magazine, about Wiesel in the classroom. (The reprinted article follows a few paragraphs in this link about Wiesel turning 80.) The photo shows Wiesel with students.
Wiesel also had ties to City College of City University of New York, where he served as Distinguished Professor of Judaic Studies, and to Chapman University, where as a presidential fellow he made regular visits to the campus from 2011 to 2015.
