The book offers an integral and inter-disciplinary view on
truth and compassion, their mutual connectedness, the
meaning of their cultivation, and the devastating
consequences of their neglect and destruction. The authors
analyse their various forms, their origins, and concrete
ways and attempts of their repression. The book is marked by
the attention to the topic of truth and compassion under
communism. But this is only one of its segments. As a whole
it ranges from basic theological and philosophical analysis
to concrete historiographic treatments of particular cases.
The central message is that speaking about grievances,
communication, dialogue, empathy, and solidarity are
necessary for living in truth and compassion.
