Forgiveness: breaking the chain of hate (1999)

Breaking the chain of hate and the hold of history. Remarkable stories.

Survivors of the Burma Railway, the Siberian Gulag and Nazi atrocities forgive those who tormented them; representatives of entire peoples, Australian Aborigines, African-Americans, black South Africans, are reconciled with whites who exploited them; offenders find the grace to apologise.

‘A deeply moving and eloquent testimony to the power of forgiveness in the life of individuals, of communities and between and within nations. It effects change.’ – Archbishop Desmond Tutu

‘This book is evidence that the stuff of forgiveness is sterner than suspected. It does not condone evil, and evil, on its part, cannot extinguish the power of forgiveness.’ – Rajmohan Gandhi
