Elie Wiesel Tells Oprah How He Became A Bernie Madoff Victim

In 2008, Elie Wiesel -- bestselling author, teacher, human rights activist -- received a midnight phone call that turned out to be (as Oprah calls it in this video), a "stunning experience." During the call, he ultimately learned that Bernie Madoff had taken his entire life savings. Oprah asks him, "What was the first thing you did?" -- and his answer is truly amazing. "Super Soul Sunday with Elie Wiesel" airs Sunday, Dec. 9 at 11 a.m. ET on OWN.
