Arutz Sheva spoke to Elisha Wiesel, the son of Holocaust survivor and Nobel laureate the late Eli Wiesel.

Wiesel was in Krakow, Poland, to participate in the annual March of the Living Holocaust commemoration.

"To see this cemetery, and to see a thousand years of Polish Jewry, and some of the great names that are buried here, brings you to remember that it's not just that there was death here in Poland. There was vibrant life for Jews here, before the war, in Poland," Wiesel said.

"I don't think you can boil [the Holocaust] down to just one message," he said. "I think there was a message for the world, which very much resonated on 'we can't allow this to happen again.' Humanity should treat itself in a humane way, not in an inhumane way."
