According to an article on the Huffington Post, Elie Wiesel recently showed his tattoo.  This quote is from the article:

[Elie Wiesel] pulls back his left jacket sleeve to reveal a Nazi death camp number tattooed on his forearm as he sits comfortably in his Manhattan office for an interview.

“Usually I don’t show it,” he says.

One of the exceptions was a 2009 visit to the Buchenwald death camp Wiesel survived, with President Barack Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

So Elie Wiesel has had a tattoo on his left arm since at least 2009.  This will be big news for those who are following the Elie Wiesel Cons the World blog.

This YouTube video shows Elie Wiesel walking around the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp and no tattoo is visible on his arm.
