The Web Site "Elie Wiesel" is published by the Nobel Foundation, in honour of the laureate of the Peace Prize in 1986.

The site contains a potted biography of Wiesel, the press release announcing the prize, and the presentation speech. His Nobel lecture at the Nobel Centennial Symposia (2001) is also online and provides an excellent resource for those studying Wiesel and his work.
