One day when he is working in a hospital, Simon is asked to forgive a dying Nazi soldier, Karl. He is faced with a dilemma that everyone has to encounter at some point in their life, but this is different than forgiving a family member for lying to you. Simon has to decide right then whether or not to forgive a murderer of many innocent Jews. Simon Wiesenthal wrote this book because he wanted to reach out and find closure for his actions. He also wanted to tell the reader about his life as a Jew in a concentration camp and the horrors he faced.

The Drowned and the Saved was created from the memories and testimonies of survivors of the Holocaust, but in particular the experiences of the author. Primo Levi draws greatly on his previous work and correspondence following his liberation from Auschwitz. The Drowned and the Saved, written decades after the war ended, essentially is a reflection on how perception of the atrocities has changed and is being forgotten. It is a warning not to erase the horror with simplifications. It is an explanation and defence of survivors and who they truly are.

Elie Wiesel’s somber speech, “The Perils of Indifference”, demonstrated the harsh reality of the numerous evils harvesting in the world. The main evil though was simply indifference, or a lack of concern.

The speaker saw atrocious horrors and suffered for a prolonged amount of time. Why was this permitted?
His book Night is a haunting tale about the horrors Jewish people experienced during World War II.

Forgive, not because they deserve forgives, but because you deserve peace. It’s not easy to stop blaming someone’s fault, especially for someone who do wrong to us. In the book The Sunflower written by Simon Wiesenthal, a survivor of the Holocaust during World War II, he described his conflict with Karl, a dying Nazi soldier who killed many innocent Jews and begging for forgiveness for his outrageous crime at the end of his life. At the end of this sad and tragic episode, Simon did not response to Karl’s request directly; instead he left us a tough question: “What should you have done?” Based on what Karl had done during World War II and his repentance, each person might have their own point of view about where should we draw the line of forgiveness.
It is extremely important to prosecute the criminals as a way of remembering the Holocaust victims and knowing what they went through. “Everywhere in the world, there is an obscene attempt by people who call themselves historians who dare to deny the deaths of the victims. Who dares to tell me my parents were not killed in the camps” (Wiesel 6). This shows that many people disbelieve in the Holocaust; therefore they are forgetting the horrendous things done to the victims. It is very important to remember the tragedy that the Holocaust caused in order for it to not happen again.
