Summary: While imprisoned in a Nazi concentration camp, Simon Wiesenthal was taken one day from his work detail to the bedside of a dying member of the SS. Haunted by the crimes in which he had participated, the soldier wanted to confess to--and obtain absolution from--a Jew. Faced with the choice between compassion and justice, silence and truth, Wiesenthal said nothing. But even years after the war had ended, he wondered: Had he done the right thing? What would you have done in h
is place?

In this important book, fifty-three distinguished men and women respond to Wiesenthal's questions. They are theologians, political leaders, writers, jurists, psychiatrists, human rights activists, Holocaust survivors, and victims of attempted genocides in Bosnia, Cambodia, China and Tibet. Their responses, as varied as their experiences of the world, remind us that Wiesenthal's questions are not limited to events of the past. Often surprising and always thought provoking, The Sunflower will challenge you to define your beliefs about justice, compassion, and human responsibility.

Paper Back Good This book carries out a fascinating project. Wiesenthal here tells the story of an excruciating event from his time in a Nazi concentration camp. A soldier of the SS was dying and w ...show moreished to confess and obtain absolution from a Jew for the crimes he had committed. Wiesenthal was selected to be the Jew. Herein he recounts, as best he can, his memory of that experience. Still wondering about the rectitude of his response, he sent his story to 53 distinguished men and women--theologians, writers, political leaders, psychiatrists, victims of attempted genocide, jurists and more--asking them how they would respond in such a situation. The answers are varied, surprising and continually thought-provoking, bringing forth myriad reflections surrounding forgiveness, justice, compassion and human responsibility. Respondents include: Bishop Desmond Tutu, Primo Levi, Martin Marty, Robert Coles, Cynthia Ozick, Harold Kushner, the XIV Dalai Lama, Mary Gordon, Herbert Marcuse and many, many others.
