Following is a link to a Shabbat Shalom Magazine interview with Elie Wiesel.
Interview with Elie Wiesel
There was one section that jumped out at me as especially sobering. The question contains a quote from Elie Wiesel. I think this is hard for many Christians to take. Certainly, there is something that we— Christianity— have done to the teachings of Jesus and the Apostles that has gone badly wrong. If we take this quote as an attack on Jesus we have missed the point— I believe it is about how we have betrayed Jesus.
Shabbat Shalom: You write: “The sincere Christian knows that what died at Auschwitz was not the Jewish people but Christianity.” Is it still possible for Jews and Christians to speak to one another after what happened?
I have omitted part of the response— see the full interview at the link above.
Elie Wiesel: ... What I said about Christianity, I still believe. The fact that the killer was Christian is a problem even more serious for Christianity, more serious than for the victims of the event, the victims being Jews. The killer was Christian!
At the end of the interview...
Elie Wiesel: ... When I say that I don’t have answers, trust me, I don’t. It’s hard. I accept with deep humility that I don’t have answers.... It is so that we can, together, engage in a kind of lesson on the question.
Shabbat Shalom: And what is the lesson?
Elie Wiesel: That the question is rich. Profound and hard. Perennial. Questions link human beings; answers divide them.
