David M. Crowe:

Oskar Schindler: The Untold Account of His Life, Wartime Activities, and the True Story Behind the List - hardcover

2004, ISBN: 081333375X

[SR: 610017], Hardcover, [EAN: 9780813333755], Westview Press, Westview Press, Book, [PU: Westview Press], 2004-10-26, Westview Press, Spy, businessman, bon vivant, Nazi Party member, Righteous Gentile. This was Oskar Schindler, the controversial man who saved eleven hundred Jews during the Holocaust but struggled afterwards to rebuild his life and gain international recognition for his wartime deeds. David Crowe examines every phase of Schindler's life in this landmark biography, presenting a savior of mythic proportions who was also an opportunist and spy who helped Nazi Germany conquer Poland. Schindler is best known for saving over a thousand Jews by putting them on the famed "Schindler's List" and then transferring them to his factory in today's Czech Republic. In reality, Schindler played only a minor role in the creation of the list through no fault of his own. Plagued by local efforts to stop the movement of Jewish workers from his factory in Kraków to his new one in Brünnlitz, and his arrest by the SS who were investigating corruption charges against the infamous Amon Göth, Schindler had little say or control over his famous "List." The tale of how the "List" was really prepared is one of the most intriguing parts of the Schindler story that Crowe tells here for the first time. Forced into exile after the war, success continually eluded Schindler and he died in very poor health in 1974. He remained a controversial figure, even in death, particularly after Emilie Schindler, his wife of forty-six years, began to criticize her husband after the appearance of Steven Spielberg's film in 1993. In Oskar Schindler, Crowe steps beyondthe mythology that has grown up around the story of Oskar Schindler and looks at the life and work of this man whom one prominent Schindler Jew described as "an extraordinary man in extraordinary times.", 2394, Holocaust, 2376, Historical, 2, Biographies & Memoirs, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 9692510011, Germany, 9681299011, Europe, 2376, Historical, 2, Biographies & Memoirs, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 4954, Germany, 4935, Europe, 9, History, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 4994, Holocaust, 4992, Jewish, 5035, World, 9, History, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books
