The Washington National Cathedral will welcome a new face this fall.

A bust of Elie Wiesel, the Holocaust survivor known for both his activism and his writing, will join those of heroes like Mother Teresa and Rosa Parks.

Washingtonian magazine shared this news along with a first look at the work in progress.

Wiesel’s Night, a spiritual memoir about surviving Auschwitz, is considered by many to be the most powerful piece of Holocaust literature.

He also won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1986.
