Another Madoff fraud victim
Evangelist Billy Graham comes to mind as I write this posting.
I did not personally meet Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel when he spoke at Oklahoma City University several years ago during activities related to the 10th anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing. However, as part of my job, I attended Wiesel’s presentation and was moved by his speech.
Wiesel, a Nobel Peace Prize winner and the author of the acclaimed book “Night,” is in the news this week because he and his wife were apparently victims of Bernie Madoff’s alleged fraudulent investment scheme that has made headlines in recent months.
CNN recently reported that Wiesel said he invested $15.2 million from his charitable foundation with Madoff. For people interested in learning what Wiesel had to say about Madoff’s alleged scheme and its impact on Wiesel’s charitable endeavors, see CNN’s report on the issue: Elie Wiesel speaks out about Madoff.
