The American Journal of Psychoanalysis, Vol. 50, No. 2, 1990 Elie Wiesel [ feel a little bit out of place in this gathering. [ am hesitant. I was reluctant to be analyzed by one analyst; now, to be analyzed tonight by so many is not something I'm looking forward to. However, as Dr. Stein has mentioned, 1 have had a long relationship with Mount Sinai. Not only have I given for its School of Medicine the commencement address (which later on caused me many troubles), but more importantly, my son was born here. Trouble? Yes. All of a sudden, word got around that I had something to say to future M.D.s; how- ever, I did not get patients, but I did get invitations to other commencements. Today is a special day. Since I don't believe in coincidences or in accidents in history--I only believe in encounters--somehow it became clear in my own mind why I'm here today and why I was given this subject. According to the Hebrew calendar, today is the 28th of Nissan. The day I was liberated. And it is symbolic. It means a new beginning. I remember that day. I remember it vividly even though
