Elie Wiesel, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, participated in a symposium organized in Istanbul in May 1993. On Friday, 7th May, Elie Wiesel paid a visit to the Chief Rabbi Rav David Asseo in his office, where he addressed the members of the Jewish Community of Turkey. In this photo, taken that day, we see my wife Klara Perahya (third from right) very happy to be with Elie Wiesel. Others in the photo are (from left to right): Naim Guleryuz (counselor to the Chief Rabbi), Hayim Eliezer Kohen (chief of the protocole of the Chief Rabbinate), the Chief Rabbi Rav David Asseo, Elie Wiesel, me (with spectacles), Mrs. Wiesel (the one with the white hair) and Suzet Sidi (on the right end).
