Faced with the choice between compassion and justice, silence and truth, Wiesenthal said nothing. But even years after the way had ended, he wondered: Had he done the right thing? What would you have done in his place? In this important book, fifty-three distinguished men and women respond to Wiesenthal's questions.

They are theologians, political leaders, writers, jurists, psychiatrists, human rights activists, Holocaust survivors, and victims of attempted genocides in Bosnia, Cambodia, China and Tibet.

Their responses, as varied as their experiences of the world, remind us that Wiesenthal's questions are not limited to events of the past. Why then did he give up his career as a doctor and leave the United States to travel around South America?

What draws him to El Girasol and then compels him to stay on as director of the orphanage? How does the three-day period Christine and Paul spend together at the orphanage lay the foundation for their relationship?

When Christine leaves the orphanage with the tour group, she writes the following in a note to Paul: "You helped me in ways you will probably never know" Describe the ways in which Paul helped her and how these were significant to Christine's development. When Christine returns to the orphanage at the end of the story, why does she repeat to Paul the phrase "Love is stronger than pain" that he used when telling her about his parents?

How does this sentiment apply to their situation? When Christine becomes sick with dengue fever, she's in a remote area of Peru with only Paul to care for her. How is this incident a turning point for Christine both personally and in terms of her relationship with Paul? What does Paul come to realize about himself and his feelings for Christine as he sees her through this illness?

Describe Christine's transformation from the beginning of the story to the end. In what significant ways does she change? When Christine and Paul leave Makisapa Lodge after she recovers from her illness, the walk through the jungle no longer frightens her. Why is Christine not afraid this time? On their last night together in Peru, Paul asks Christine to marry him.
