There aren’t too many people on the planet that I can say I’d be honored just to pass in a lobby, but that’s exactly how I feel about author and Nobel Peace Prize winner Elie Wiesel. We just ran into each other downstairs, and I got to exchange a few words with a great man. He was here shooting an interview to coincide with our broadcast of Visions of Israel.
When I asked the crew how the shoot had gone, they could not have been more complimentary. One of our staffers told me that “when Elie Wiesel shakes your hand, it’s a handshake you’re going to remember for the rest of your life.” I couldn’t agree more.
Visions of Israel will premiere on May 14th, 2008.
