    DescriptionIn the shadow of Auschwitz, a flamboyant German industrialist defied the SS and risked his life to protect Jews in Nazi-occupied Poland. His name was Oskar Schindler. Thomas Keneally's unforgettable novel recreates the story of this unlikely angel of mercy, and of the people he saved. Winner of the Booker Prize in 1982, it was subsequently dramatised as the Oscar-winning film Schindler's List. 'Keneally has done marvellous justice to a marvellous story' THE SUNDAY TIMES 'Brilliantly detailed, moving, powerful and gripping' THE TIMES

    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 The 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
