He had moved to Oregon several years ago and since then he has shared his life story with 300 audiences in universities colleges middle and high schools Churches Synagogues prisons clubs etc. He has also been interviewed by radio and TV stations as well as the press     Wieners autobiography is a testimony to an unfolding tragedy taking place in WWII. It has a message what prejudice may lead to and how tolerance is imperative.       This book is not just Wieners life story but it reveals many responses to his story.
