Oskar Schindler and his list : the man, the book, the film, the Holocaust and its survivors by Thomas Fensch( Book )

Thirty years before Thomas Keneally wrote the book Schindler's List, journalist Herbert Steinhouse interviewed Oskar Schindler. That 1949 account, plus a recent interview with Steinhouse, opens this collection of essays, articles, and interviews, which illuminate Schindler and the international effect of his story.

Thomas Fensch pieces together articles and interviews to show how Keneally came to write Schindler's List; how Steven Spielberg brought this extraordinary story to life on film; and how uncovering Schindler's valiant rescue of so many Jewish lives has dramatically altered Holocaust awareness in our time
