The Sunflower:

On the Possibilities and Limits of Forgiveness

by Simon Weisenthal

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. 

The Sunflower will challenge you to define your beliefs about justice, compassion, and human responsibility.                         

Parking is available at the Providence Hilton Parking Garage: $3/3 hours.
