I didn't hear about this. Thanks to Shakespeare's Coffee for posting about it.
"Elie Wiesel, the renowned Holocaust author and Nobel Peace Prize winner, was attacked and dragged out of a San Francisco hotel elevator last week, possibly by a Holocaust denier who claims to have stalked Wiesel for weeks, police said Friday."

Weisel was not injured but he did pull out of the conference and had police escort him to the airport. Someone is claiming to be responsible.
"After ensuring no women would be traumatized by what I had to do (I had been trailing Wiesel for weeks), I stopped the elevator at the sixth floor," Hunt wrote."

What a gentleman (she says with as much snark as she can muster).
