Wiesel Slams Madoff

In case you had any doubts about Bernard Madoff’s badness, Nobel laureate and Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel, whose charity was wiped out by Madoff’s Ponzi scheme, wants you to know Madoff is a “psychopath,” “crook,” “thief,” “scoundrel,” “swindler,” and “evil.” As part of a panel hosted by Conde Nast Portfolio, Wiesel said "All of a sudden, everything we have done in forty years—literally, my books, my lectures, my university salary, everything—was gone." Will there be justice? "I would like him to be in a solitary cell with a screen, and on that screen ... every day and every night there should be pictures of his victims, one after the other after the other, always saying, 'Look, look what you have done.' ... He should not be able to avoid those faces, for years to come."
