The Sunflower: On the Possibilities and Limits of Forgiveness

by Simon Wiesenthal


The Sunflower is a book on the Holocaust by Simon Wiesenthal, he reminisces his experience with a terminally wounded Nazi. The book recounts Wiesenthal's experience in the Lemberg concentration camp and discusses the moral ethics of the matter. The title comes from Wiesenthal's observation of a German military cemetery, seeing a sunflower on each grave, and fearing his own placement in an un-marked, mass grave. The book's second half is a symposium of answers from various people, including Holocaust survivors and former Nazis. The book was originally published in France.
