Deborah E. Lipstadt

Cons⚫️Being that she has Jewish beliefs, certain topics are seen differently/more opinionated⚫️Changes Simon's question and answers it in an indirect manner that's not completely full⚫️Odd sentence structure and different vocabulary

Thesis Statement: Deborah E. Lipstadt's account should be studied by students because even though she does not fully answer Simon Wiesenthal's question, she does give strong arguments on how to obtain full repentance and atonement.

Final Opinion: Even though Lipstdadt does not directly answer Simon's question, students should read her essay because she redirects the readers mind and changes the question so that the reader can better understand the situation that Simon was in.

Pros⚫️Well educated, has deeply studied the Jewish religion and the Holocaust⚫️Takes her essay in a different direction to help readers fully grasp the situation that Simon was in when asked by the SS soldier to forgive him⚫️Asks critical thinking questions that are engaging and appropriate to Simon's question
