Query on Wiesel quote


I have been trying, unsuccessfully, to track down a quote from Wiesel.  In rough paraphrase, he wrote, "we reject the one who has known pure suffering unless we can make a god of him...." etc.

If someone can email me the source, greatly appreciated..  

Thanks and best to all,

Hank Greenspan
