Résumé de l'éditeur

During the Holocaust at the German concentration camp near Plaszow, thousands of Jews lost their lives at the hands of the Nazis. More than a thousand others were spared thanks to a womanizing, heavy-drinking, German-Catholic industrialist and Nazi Party member named Oskar Schindler. One of the most remarkable narratives of the Holocaust, Schindler's List masterfully recreates the daring exploits of Schindler, who used his enormous fortune to build a factory near the concentration camp and his influence to save the lives of more than 1,300 Jews. It is an absorbing, suspenseful, and moving account of Schindler's legacy of life.

Disappointing!

This is a rare example of a book being less interesting than the movie!

Of course, the story of over 1000 Jews being saved from death by German industrialist Oskar Schindler is gripping.

The problem lies with the poor writing which does not succeed in bringing coherently together the multiple pieces of research that were made. The chronology of events is at times shaky as is the characters’ psychology. The sources used are not explicitly identified and the reader often ends up confused.

Overall, it appears better to stick to the cinematic masterwork.
