The Jewish High Holidays are about to begin. One them of these holidays is forgiveness. Eva Kor, survivor of Mengele’s notorious experiments on twins at Auschwitz, gave a moving presentation at the Humans Subjects Research after the Holocaust (HSRAH) workshop co-sponsored by the Houston Methodist Research Institute and CMATH. She included in her presentation her comments about her controversial decision to forgive Mengele fifty years after the liberation of Auschwitz. I recommend that you view this remarkable video.
Sunflower: On the Possibilities and Limits of Forgiveness tells the fascinating story of Simon Wiesenthal’s response to a Nazi soldier who wants absolution from a Jew. The latest edition of his book offers the opinions of more than 50 thinkers about the difficult decision Wiesenthal made while a prisoner in Lemberg concentration camp.
