"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"From the Publisher:
This book offers the first true exploration of the myths and realities of the controversial Holocaust figure - spy, businessman, bon vivant, Nazi Party member, Righteous Gentile. This was Oskar Schindler, the controversial saviour of almost 12,000 Jews during the Holocaust who struggled afterwards to rebuild his life and gain international recognition for his wartime deeds. Author David Crowe examines every phase of the subject's life in this landmark biography, presenting a figure of mythic proportions that one prominent Schindler Jews described as "an extraordinary man in extraordinary times."
