The Elie Wiesel Foundation has reported that it is among “the victims” of Bernard Madoff, having lost nearly all its assets in what may be the largest investment fraud in history.
But don’t call Mr. Wiesel, or his foundation, a victim.
“I don’t want my name linked with that crook,” Wiesel says, as soft-spoken as ever. “I don’t want to be known as one of his victims. I want my name linked to peace and literature and human rights.”
But do call Bernie Madoff an asshole!
