Book Summary: A Holocaust survivor's surprising and thought-provoking study of forgiveness, justice, compassion, and human responsibility, featuring contributions from the Dalai Lama, Harry Wu, Cynthia Ozick, Primo Levi, and more. 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.

Come along on a Holocaust survivor’s quest to answer the questions surrounding the forgiveness of a Nazi soldier. Imagine that while experiencing the atrocities of living in a concentration camp, you become confronted with a dying Nazi soldier’s request for forgiveness. Could you forgive a person who played a role in the systematic killing of millions of innocent people? While holding his hand and listening to confessions of the crimes against your own people, many others outside are suffering from starvation, working to death, and being led into gas chambers. Simon Wiesenthal experienced such a scenario during his time at a concentration camp in German-occupied Poland, and he has since been plagued with the question: to forgive or not to forgive? Of course, he has lived with the decision that he made at that moment, but his experience has inspired him to seek answers from others. By speaking with more than 50 people from different walks of life, ranging from religious leaders to fellow genocide survivors, Wiesenthal seeks to answer if he made the right decision. As you read, learn about a dying Nazi’s search for repentance, how Wiesenthal reacts when face-to-face with a murderer, and lastly, why practicers of Judaism believe murderers cannot be forgiven.

This was no ordinary Sunflower; her petals were as bright as the rays of the sun; her seeds were magical, full of light and love. People travelled from far and wide to see the Sunflower and feel her radiant energy. The Sunflower loved the garden where she lived. She especially loved it when the children played close by and her friends, the birds, butterflies and small animals would come to visit her. As time passed the beautiful Sunflower’s life changed. The crowds that came to see her began to overwhelm her. She became sad and afraid, she could bear no more. With the help of her Angels, a wise old Goose and the power of the wind, the delicate Sunflower is taken to a place of peace and happiness.

Book Summary: Ecological restoration, the attempt to guide damaged ecosystems back to a previous, usually healthier or more natural, condition, is rapidly gaining recognition as one of the most promising approaches to conservation. In this book, William R. Jordan III, who coined the term "restoration ecology," and who is widely respected as an intellectual leader in the field, outlines a vision for a restoration-based environmentalism that has emerged from his work over twenty-five years. Drawing on a provocative range of thinkers, from anthropologists Victor Turner, Roy Rappaport, and Mary Douglas to literary critics Frederick Turner, Leo Marx, and R.W.B. Lewis, Jordan explores the promise of restoration, both as a way of reversing environmental damage and as a context for negotiating our relationship with nature. Exploring restoration not only as a technology but also as an experience and a performing art, Jordan claims that it is the indispensable key to conservation. At the same time, he argues, restoration is valuable because it provides a context for confronting the most troubling aspects of our relationship with nature. For this reason, it offers a way past the essentially sentimental idea of nature that environmental thinkers have taken for granted since the time of Emerson and Muir.
