Simon Wiesenthal's The SunflowerDuring the Holocaust, a young, dying Nazi soldier confesses his horrific crimes and begs forgiveness from a Jewish death camp prisoner. Does the Nazi deserve forgiveness if he is truly repentant? Is it ethical or allowable for someone who was not the direct victim to offer forgiveness on behalf of those who were murdered? What do Jewish, non-Jewish, and secular philosophies teach about forgiveness?

Join Lead Teen Educator Robin Wald and fellow Bet Torah teens as we delve deeper into Holocaust learning and the themes of responsibility and forgiveness, through a discussion of Simon Wiesenthal’s The Sunflower.
