Arne Brun Lie (February 2, 1925 - April 11, 2010[1]) was a Norwegian-American author and Holocaust survivor, best known for the book Night and Fog: A Survivor's Story (1990).

Born in Oslo, Norway, Lie was a member of the Norwegian Resistance during the Occupation of Norway by Nazi Germany.

He was released in 1944.[2]

Following his release, Lie moved back to Norway. He immigrated to the United States in the early 1980s, and since then became public about his Holocaust experience, publishing a book and releasing a documentary film.[3] Lie moved to Ipswich, MA in 1989. He was the brother of Sylvei Brun Lie, who is the wife of the famous Norwegian lawyer, judge and politician Jens Evensen.
