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 way had ended, 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 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. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Wiesenthal tells the authentic story of a young Polish woman who joined the Polish resistance movement, was caught, and soon after shot by the Germans under the mistaken assumption that she was Jewish. In prison, the night before her execution, she told her story to a fellow prisoner, Anya, who survived: Krystyna was dying as a Jew to avoid being tortured and forced to reveal her comrades' names. Years later Anya told Wiesenthal Krystyna's story, and asked him to bring the guilty ones to justice, which he did. In his research the author uncovered many details about the workings of the Polish resistance. In alternating chapters he intersperses the tale of his true-to-life characters with a factual historical account of the Polish underground.

Dedicated to the memory of the 'conscience of the Holocaust', Simon Wiesenthal, to whom it offers a number of personal tributes, this book brings together essays by a wide variety of authors on antisemitism and related forms of intolerance, racism and xenophobia. Starting from the idea that antisemitism constitutes a paradigm case of collective and individual hatred, it examines some of the reasons why it has prospered over the ages and persists in our time, even after well-nigh universal condemnation of the Holocaust. Some authors see it as a virus, always ready to develop and spread, wherever Jewish difference is resented; others emphasize that the antisemitic myths are not grounded in reality but depend rather on a fabrication, an imagined being to whom every kind of vice and perversion can be attributed. Jews, Gypsies, Kurds, Armenians, Tutsis: they can all be made to fit the bill. Book jacket.
