Unforgivable

In the Novel "The Sunflower" by Simon Wiesenthal, a dying S.S soldier named Karl asks Simon for forgiveness.It is difficult for me to forgive somebody I barely know.It would need to take a lot of time to gain someone's trust before I can forgive a person.As Karl is dying slowly, he tells Simon about his childhood.Karl was raised as a Catholic, server in the church, and one of the favorites of the priest.He was a good kid until he joined the Hitler Youth.He then talks about his career including killing Jews and many innocent lives.Although Karl was a good kid and felt bad about what he had done, I wouldn't forgive him because he is a murderer and murderers should not be forgiven.
I would not forgive Karl because I have no right to accept an apology for anybody but myself.I cannot speak for the many lives that he took away, and they obviously no longer can speak for themselves.For example, Josek says "You have suffered nothing because of him, and it follows that what he has done to other people you are in no position to forgive" (Wiesenthal Page 65).I strongly agree with Josek because Karl had killed many innocent people, and I cannot take responsibility on forgiving for the innocent people he killed. I wouldn't have the right to forgive for the whole community.I cant forgive because if I were fully aware of my actions knowing the consequences and still taking the actions then I must take fully responsibility.
It's wrong that Karl had killed many innocent Jews.Simply asking for forgiveness would bother me because asking for forgiveness is like to fix or repair something, and his victims lives can never be repaired or fixed.If I were to forgive him then it would give him the satisfaction of dying peacefully.Why should he die peacefully while thousands of innocent people didn't?Although he shouldn't be forcibly put to death, he should not
