Review

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)

Book Description

The Booker Prize-winning true story of a hero of the Second World War

Product Description

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.
