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.
