The sunflower : on the possibilities and limits of forgiveness by Simon Wiesenthal( Book )

38 editions published between 1976 and 2017 in English and Spanish and held by 1,711 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While imprisoned in a Nazi concentration camp, Simon Wiesenthal was taken one day from his work detail to the bedside of a dying member of the SS. Haunted by the crimes in which he had participated, the soldier wanted to confess to--and obtain absolution from--a Jew. Faced with the choice between compassion and justice, silence and truth, Wiesenthal said nothing. But even years after the way had ended, he wondered: Had he done the right thing? What would you have done in his place? In this important book, fifty-three distinguished men and women respond to Wiesenthal's questions. They are theologians, political leaders, writers, jurists, psychiatrists, human rights activists, Holocaust survivors, and victims of attempted genocides in Bosnia, Cambodia, China and Tibet. Their responses, as varied as their experiences of the world, remind us that Wiesenthal's questions are not limited to events of the past. Often surprising and always thought provoking, The Sunflower From the Trade Paperback edition

Problems unique to the Holocaust by Harry J Cargas( Book )

17 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 833 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Problems Unique to the Holocaust, today's leading Holocaust scholars examine the difficult questions surrounding this terrible chapter in world history. Is it ever legitimate to betray others to save yourself? If a group of Jews is hiding behind a wall and a baby begins to cry, should an adult smother the child to protect the safety of the others? Should the men and women who took their own lives in the face of the Nazi onslaught be considered suicide or murder victims? How guilty are the bystanders who saw what was happening but did nothing to aid the victims of persecution?

Reflections of a post-Auschwitz Christian by Harry J Cargas( Book )

8 editions published in 1989 in English and German and held by 462 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A series of essays (most of them published previously) attempting to deal with issues that the Holocaust has raised for Christians. States that the Christian Churches must accept responsibility for centuries of Jewish persecution which led to the Holocaust. Criticizes the silence of the Church and Pope Pius XII, who failed to speak out against Nazi persecution of the Jews and did not excommunicate Hitler and other top Nazi officials who were Catholics. Criticizes the meeting of Pope John Paul II with Kurt Waldheim in 1988. Challenges Christians to see the Holocaust as a turning-point towards a Christian reformation which will uproot the dogma of hate and persecution of the Jews, and rediscover the love on which Christianity is based

Invisible harmony : essays on contemplation and responsibility by Raimon Panikkar( Book )

8 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Raimon Panikkar's contributions to comparative religions and Christian theology have made him a pioneer in East-West and interreligious dialogue. A gifted and original thinker, Panikkar here issues an invitation to a world spirituality, a human cosmic trust. Spirituality without responsibility is egoism or cowardice, he asserts. He shows how the intense personal and societal reassessment that comes from a serious encounter with world religious traditions radically challenges modern Western assumptions and illumines complex questions of action and contemplation, immanence and transcendence, pluralism and truth, and religious responsibility for the world."--BOOK JACKET
