A must read...,
This review is from: Schindler's List (Paperback)
I agree with another review, in that I wasn't fond of the style of writing. At the begining I found it difficult to get into for that reason, but I'm glad I continued.
I consider this book important to read for two reasons. The first is that we need to learn about and remember the atrocities that were committed during the Holocaust to insure that they're never repeated. The second is that we need to remember and celebrate the ordinary people, like Oskar and Emilie Schindler, who risked their lives to save others.
Something I really liked about the book was that it was very honest - it didn't try to portray Oskar Schindler as a saint. For example, his constant infidelity is documented along with all his good deeds.
