The Sunflower explores different levels of pain and suffering, penitence and forgiveness. The author, Simon Weisenthal, writes of his life in a Nazi death camp in World War II. One day, he recounts, he was taken from his work squad and brought to the death bed of an elite Nazi soldier, who, guilty for his role in the slauhter of Jews, seeks to be heard- and forgiven - for his crimes. Weisenthal, enving him for the grave he will recieve, a grave in a quiet cemetary with a sunflower planted on it as opposed to the unmarked mass grave he believes to be waiting for him, nevertheless hears the confession in silence. He confronts his readers with the same choice- In his place, what would they have done? What would you have done?

The Sunflower is the story of a dying Nazi SS soldier who calls Simon Wiesenthal, the author, into his hospital room and asks for forgiveness for the crimes he has committed. Wiesenthal leaves the room in silence without fufilling the Nazi's dying wish: to be forgivien by a Jew. The book also describes Simon Wiesenthal's own experiences in the concentration camps and instances where he was a vicitm of an anti-semitic movment. This book greatly moved me and opened my eyes to even more amazement and wonderment that I have have ever known about World War II and the Holocaust. It was an excellent read and yet a mildly depressing one, too.
