Forgiveness: A Time To Love And A Time To Hate
Could you forgive the person who violently killed your loved one? Would you? This is one of the tough, thought-provoking questions at the heart of my next guest’s film. Forgiveness: A Time to Love and a Time to Hate, explores the timely, nearly ubiquitous applications and limitations of the concept and practice of forgiveness through a compelling range of stories, from personal betrayal to global reconciliation after the holocaust. The film looks at the 2006 shooting of Amish children in Nickel Mines, Pennsylvania and at Rwanda's attempts to legislate forgiveness in the wake of the genocide. It also features the story of 1960s anti-war activist Cathy Powers and her surrender to authorities after decades on the run for the murder of Boston police patrolman Walter Schroeder. Power’s search for forgiveness leads her to the victim’s daughter and family. We talk with Helen Whitney, who wrote, produced and directed Forgiveness. She joins us from New York. You can catch the first part of "Forgiveness: A Time to Love and a Time to Hate" tonight on WGBH-2 9pm. The second part airs next Thursday, April 28th. We also hear from Stanley Forman – a long-time local news photographer – who knew Walter Schroeder and has written about his memories of the day he was killed.
