Holocaust survivor and Jewish thought-leader Elie Wiesel will be speaking with Oprah Winfrey this Sunday on OWN's "Super Soul Sunday" at 11:00 a.m. ET/PT.
In the episode, Wiesel shares his thoughts on love, regret and abiding faith as he faced his own mortality when he had open-heart surgery at age 82. Detailing these experiences in his latest memoir, Open Heart, he opens up about his fears during this lifesaving operation and how going through it allowed him to re-examine his career and deepen his devotion to his family. Wiesel also talks to Winfrey about being a Holocaust survivor and losing his life savings in the Bernard Madoff scandal.
