Schindler's List is a remarkable work of fiction based on the true story of German industrialist and war profiteer, Oskar Schindler, who, confronted with the horror of the extermination camps, gambled his life and fortune to rescue 1,300 Jews from the gas chambers.
Working with the actual testimony of Schindler's Jews, Thomas Keneally artfully depicts the courage and shrewdness of an unlikely savior, a man who is a flawed mixture of hedonism and decency and who, in the presence of unutterable evil, transcends the limits of his own humanity.
Based on a true incident, this is the story of Oscar Schindler, a German industrialist who saved over 1000 Jews from the Nazis. Keneally's account is taken from the testimonies of dozens of Holocaust survivors.
He has lived in both Sydney and California.
