Summary: Imagine you are a prisoner in a concentration camp.  A dying Nazi soldier asks for your forgiveness. What should you do? Join us for this study as we explore Simon Wiesenthal’s story, The Sunflower, that includes the responses of theologians, political leaders, writers, jurists, psychiatrists, human rights activists, and Holocaust survivors, and the possibilities and limits of forgiveness within our own lives. In the chaos of our world, we now need to learn and practice forgiveness more than ever.
