Awesome. I learned even more about the Holocaust that I could not even imagine. I did not read other people's views because I need to savor his actions for myself.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Sunflower Simon Wiesenthal review 24 Jun 2013

It is the author's true experience
It makes you stop and think about how you might have reacted in this same situation
it also makes you stop and think about how you treat the people you encounter in everyday life.
Just what kind of person are you? More like our author? or More like the German Soldier?

5.0 out of 5 stars This story will make you look at things differently! 5 July 2009
By Antonio Schiano - Published on
I approached this book speculating on what I would have done if I was placed in Simon's situation. After reading Karl's testimony numerous times and the sentiments expressed in the Symposium, I pondered the question days later. The reader doesn't necessarily have to make a decision, but this book offers an array of opinions which enables even further rumination. Truly a Wonerful and powerful read!
