Born in Sighet, Romania, Elie Wiesel was the son of a grocer. In 1944 he and his family were deported, along with other Jews, to the Nazi death camps. His father died in Buchenwald and his mother and his younger sisters at Auschwitz. Wiesel did not learn until after the war that his older sisters had also survived. Upon liberation from the camps, Wiesel boarded a train for Western Europe with other orphans. The train arrived in France, where he chose to remain. He settled first in Normandy and later in Paris, where he completed his education at the Sorbonne (from 1948 to 1951).

The author of the text of this work, Elie Wiesel, especially stresses the 12th of these in the coming of the Messiah and of the Messianic Age. He then throws that belief - and the other beliefs of Maimonides - against the crushing fact of the Holocaust. Wiesel (born 1928) had been swept up from his native Romania into Hitler's death system, arriving at Auschwitz in 1944. His writing dealing with the Holocaust has made him one of the most powerful voices speaking personally out of that horror.
I want to find there a society ruled by a vision of probity, justice, and compassion. On November 13 and 14, at Carnegie Hall, Ani Maamin, a Song Lost and Found Again is performed by an orchestra and choir under the baton of Lukas Foss. It is a paradoxical yet understandable demand. I had conceived this cantata, for which Darius Milhaud composed the score, for the centennial celebration of American Reform Jewry. It was commissioned by Al Ronald, a German Jew and former member of the Office of Strategic Services.
