By Simon Wiesenthal
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 later, he wondered: Had he done the right thing? What would you have done in his place?
In this important book, fifty-three distinguished men and women, including Robert Coles, the Dalai Lama, Matthew Fox, Mary Gordon, Harold S. Kushner, Dennis Prager, Dith Pran, Desmond Tutu, Harry Wu and 44 others respond to Wiesenthal’s questions. The Sunflower will challenge you to define your beliefs about justice, compassion, and human responsibility.
