    DescriptionMade into the award-winning film 'Schindler's List'. In the shadow of Auschwitz, a flamboyant German industrialist grew into a living legend to the Jews of Cracow. He was a womaniser, a heavy drinker and a bon viveur, but to them he became a saviour. This is the extraordinary story of Oskar Schindler, who risked his life to protect Jews in Nazi-occupied Poland and who was transformed by the war into a man with a mission, a compassionate angel of mercy.

    Review quote
    An extraordinary achievement Graham Greene Brilliantly detailed, moving, powerful and gripping The Times Thomas Keneally has done marvellous justice to a marvellous story Sunday Times Keneally is a superb storyteller. With SCHINDLER'S ARK he has given us his best book yet, a magnificent novel which held me from the first page to the last Alan Sillitoe This remarkable book has the immediacy and the almost unbearable detail of a thousand eye witnesses who forgot nothing New York Times Book Review
