The other text set available for teachers in English IV to use is The Sunflower by Simon Wiesenthal, a Holocaust survivor, and Nazi hunter after the war. In The Sunflower, Wiesenthal poses a moral question of whether the perpetrators of the Holocaust could be forgiven as he shares an experience with a dying Nazi soldier who confesses to a horrific crime where many Jews were killed brutally. As Wiesenthal poses this question to the reader, the second half of the book details responses from many prominent people, weighing in on the question of forgiveness. This text is available online as a pdf, but we recommend purchasing a class set for students to be able to read.
