Elie Wiesel: We must take sides


You can find this quote a million places on the web, 850,000 of them being beautiful images which cannot be text-searched. I choose to pin this one, repeated by a well-known presidential biographer. (At least, that’s how I think of him.)

Steven Beschloss (@StevenBeschloss) Tweeted: The truth of this from Elie Wiesel is especially clear now:

“We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented. Sometimes we must interfere.”
