    Patt Morrison Asks: George Regas, keeping faith

    Elie Wiesel, history's witness
    It was a fine April day last week that found Elie Wiesel at Chapman University; it was a fine April day too, 58 years earlier, when the gaunt, teenage Wiesel found himself alive and suddenly free to walk out of the Buchenwald concentration camp. In the...
