"Most biographies are written against a sketchy background of historical events drawn with just enough broad strokes of the brush to provide context for a life. Crowe's book, apart from the affecting last chapters on the autumn of Schindler's life, is just the opposite...In these Auschwitz memorial days we are filled with tales and images of Jewish deaths. Crowe's book honours the heroism of Hitler's working Jews in life" The Spectator"

Schindler is a complex man. Womaniser, fraudster, and yet after making a fortune from his activities in Krakow he decides to give it all up to save lives of many of his Jewish workers. Why? This answer is addressed in some detail and it certainly left me wiser than I was before I tackled this huge book.
The is a little long winded but for all that it is a fascinating insight into one the twentieth centuries most hypnotic characters.
