<b>Wiesel Returns Award </b><br><br><br>Holocaust survivor and Nobel laureate Elie Wiesel has "repudiated" a Hungarian government award he received in 2004 because top officials in Budapest attended a ceremony for a Nazi sympathiser. The memorial rite held weeks ago was offensive to the 83-year-old Wiesel, whose parents were sent to their deaths at Auschwitz by wartime Hungarian officials. Wiesel's searing memoir, Night, about the year he and his father spent in Auschwitz and Buchenwald, gave the world one of the most important testimonies to the inhumanity of Hitler's camps. He said in an interview that the Hungarian affair was just "too close to home". He wrote a letter this month to the speaker of the Hungarian parliament, Laszlo Kover, rejecting the award granted in 2004 by Hungary's president. Wiesel says it's "outrageous" that the parliament speaker participated in the May 27 ceremony honouring wartime parliament member Jozsef Nyiro. Wiesel calls him "a fascist ideologue".
