Description

In remembrance of the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz and the Nazi concentration camps, this award-winning, bestselling work of Holocaust fiction, inspiration for the classic film and "masterful account of the growth of the human soul" (Los Angeles Times Book Review), returns with an all-new introduction by the author.

An "extraordinary" (The New York Review of Books) 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 The Book of Science and Antiquities and The 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. "Astounding...in this case the truth is far more powerful than anything the imagination could invent" (Newsweek).

Reviews

"The remarkable story of a man who saved lives when every sinew of civilization was devoted to destroying them. [It] has the immediacy and the almost unbearable detail of a thousand eye witnesses who forgot nothing."  --The New York Times Book Review

"A masterful account of the growth of the human soul." --Los Angeles Times Book Review 

"An extraordinary tale...no summary can adequately convey the strategems and reverses and sudden twists of fortune...A notable achievement." --New York Review of Books 

"One of the best works on the Holocaust, an absorbing, suspenseful book that transcends by far even the best docudramas on the subject." --Houston Chronicle

"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." --Simon Wiesenthal 

"An astounding story...in this case the truth is far more powerful than anything the imagination could invent." --Newsweek
