78 year-old Elie Wiesel, author of Night, who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1986, was dragged out of an elevator in a San Francisco hotel earlier this month by a Holocaust denier who berated and attacked him. I don't think Elie was badly hurt; hopefully he's doing fine now. (More on this, in a rather shrill piece, via the New York Observer.)
