Stephane Hessel, 95, a concentration-camp survivor and member of the French Resistance whose 32-page book, Time for Outrage, became a best-seller and an inspiration for the left in Europe and the United States, died Tuesday in Paris.
The book came out in 2010 as a rallying cry against the gap between rich and poor. Mr. Hessel said he wanted to imbue France's youth with the fervor of those who held out against the Nazis.
Its first run was 8,000 copies. It sold millions of copies and became an inspiration for the Occupy Wall Street movement.
