A stunning novel based on the true story of how German war profiteer and factory director Oskar Schindler came to save more Jews from the gas chambers than any other single person during World War II. In this milestone of Holocaust literature, Thomas Keneally, author of Daughter of Mars, uses the actual testimony of the Schindlerjuden Schindler's Jews to brilliantly portray the courage and cunning of a good man in the midst of unspeakable evil.
New York Review of Books
An extraordinary tale...no summary can adequately convey the strategems and reverses and sudden twists of fortune...A notable achievement.
A truly heroic story of the war and, like the tree planted in Oskar Schindler's honor in Jerusalem, a fitting memorial to the fight of one individual against the horror of Nazism.
An astounding story...in this case the truth is far more powerful than anything the imagination could invent.
