I don't know how you'd even begin to critize this book. I haven't had much opportunity in my life to reflect on the nature of forgiveness. This book certainly gave me a push in that direction. Mr. Wiesenthal's experience as related in this book is quite frankly unbelievable. Just when I would think the emotional punch couldn't possibly get worse it did. This is a story that needs to be more widely known. Yes, it is a story of the holocaust but it allows you to think all of life in a different way. It isn't confined in that place in history.
I found this a very interesting book. It really makes you stop and think about whether you could forgive the Nazis for the Holocaust or for that matter anyone or nation that commits genecide. This is particularly tough to deal with from a Christian perspective.
I plan to use this book in a adult book club this summer. I think it is a great book for discussion. I highly recommend it.
