Wiesel was not a misnaged- he was born a Vizhnitzer Chasid, and was very frum until after his experiences in the Holocaust. If you would know anything about his history, you would know that his relationship with the Rebbe was one in which the Rebbe “restored his faith” after the Holocaust, which he writes about clearly in his memoirs.

So while not everything he says is kodosh vetohor, your comment is simply incorrect and has no basis in historical fact.
