Elie Wiesel Nobel Peace Prize-winner, author and Auschwitz survivor Elie Wiesel will talk about human rights at a benefit for the Holocaust Museum Houston. After the war, Wiesel became a journalist in Paris, and he didn't discuss his experiences in the concentration camps until the late '50s. Since then, he has published 35 books, garnered many honors and spoken eloquently for the rights of Argentina's "disappeared," Cambodian refugees, Kurds, Nicaragua's Miskito Indians, Soviet Jews and prisoners in the former Yugoslavia. The chance to hear Wiesel speak in Houston is a rare and valuable opportunity. 8 p.m. Jones Hall, 615 Louisiana. For more information on this lecture or museum membership, call 942-8000. Lecture open to charter members; charter memberships are $100 and up. Each member gets two tickets.
