Oskar Schindler (28 April 1908 – 9 October 1974) was a German industrialist and a member of the Nazi Party who is credited with saving the lives of over 1,200 Jews during the Holocaust by employing them in his enamelware and ammunitions factories in occupied Poland. He remained virtually unknown until Keneally published this book in 1982. His name is probably best known, however, from the 1993 Spielberg’s film Schindler’s List, which starred Liam Neeson as Schindler and Ralph Fiennes as Göth. The film won seven academy awards, seven BAFTAs and three golden globes.
