The theme of "Extreme Forgiveness" is forgiveness, reconciliation and assimilation. WWII German bomber pilot Kurt Fox sank the USS Maddox, an American destroyer, in 1943 killing 210 men and leaving seventy-four survivors. After the war, he earned a medical degree, emigrated to America and practiced family medicine for twenty-nine years in rural Virginia. He then volunteered to provide medical care in two Indian reservations. Fellow practitioners and members of his community accorded him considerable respect. In 1995, fifty-two years after the sinking, Dr. Fox received an unexpected call inviting him to a reunion of Maddox survivors. There, they inducted him into their association as an honorary member. This was extreme forgiveness.
