Schindler's List In the shadow of Auschwitz, a flamboyant German industrialist grew into a living legend to the Jews of Cracow He was a womaniser, a heavy drinker and a bon viveur, but to them he became a saviour This is the extraordinary story of Oskar Schindler, who risked his life to protect Jews in Nazi occupied Poland and who was transformed by the war into a man with a mission, a compassionate angel of mercy This is a wonderful book and a wonderful story, everyone should know what oskar schindler did for Jews in WW2 However, this book was very hard to read, like reading a research paper Pfefferberg basically begged Keneally for an hour to write a book because of that the first half of this book was very forced i felt like he didnt want to write this, that his heart wasnt in this, Toward the middle of the book i flowed a littlebut not until the last 8 10 chapters did it start to be easier t This is a wonderful book and a wonderful story, everyone should know what oskar schindler did for Jews in WW2 However, this book was very hard to read, like reading a research paper Pfefferberg basically begged Keneally for an hour to write a book because of that the first half of this book was very forced i felt like he didnt want to write this, that his heart wasnt in this, Toward the middle of the book i flowed a littlebut not until the last 8 10 chapters did it start to be easier to read That is when i really got into this book I felt too much like a teacher reading a very bland paper with no vivids and a lot of plain facts All of that aside, this book should be something everyone knows about, there are things i didnt know happened in WW2 in this book and anyone who cares about knowing anything about ww2 should read it Oskar Schindler is was a hero.This book is so real and should not be taken as lightly as i took in in the first chapters, because once i finished i realized how much everyone should know about what schindler did i gave it 3 stars for the difficulty in reading it and the research paper like quality of the literature Much has been said about the 1993 Stephen Spielberg Oscar winning movie In 2007, it ranked 8th in the 100 Best American Movies For All Times list I saw it twice in the movie house when it was released I bought copies of it Copies because you know how technology progresses VHS, then VCD, then DVD, then Blue Ray when will this ever stop Every time I bought me a copy, I watched it Every time I watched it, I cried.But surprisingly, I did not cry reading the book, 1982 Thomas Keanally s Much has been

cried.But surprisingly, I did not cry reading the book, 1982 Thomas Keanally s born 1935 Booker Prize winning Schindler s List Rather, I was enthralled by it Do you know the feeling when you re eyes are wide awake and your brain is busy trying to absorb what you are reading especially facts and figures You do not have time to cry It is normally the book is better than the movie for me Not this time The book made me understand the movieSo, saying that the movie is better than the book is an injustice to the book After all, the movie was based on that and Spielberg was so faithful to it, you will easily recall the scene in the movie while reading the book Spielberg tried to tell us a story by showing glorious black and white moving pictures on the screen Keneally tells us the background of each mostly harrowing scene and each of the many unforgettable characters their stories, their background, and their fates Spielberg was constrained by the length of his reel s of film, i.e., production cost Keneally did not have any limit on how many pages his novel would take He has a rich source of information Poldek Pfefferberg 1913 2001 , one of the 1,100 Holocaust survivors saved by Schindler, called Schindlerjuden and who has made his life s mission to tell the story of his savior, Oscar Schindler 1908 1974 As in any of Holocaust novels, my heart bleeds most when it comes to the innocent children caught in the midst of it all Who would forget the 8 y o Olek Dresden who hides in the man s toilet hole Olek is the son of Henry Dresden who is the guy playing the piano in one of the scenes inside the house of Herr Kommander Amon Goethe, the heartless camp commander In the book, it is not Olek who hides in this disgusting hole It is an unnamed 11 y o boy and the book s description, the scent is revolting and flies swarming the boy s eyes, ears and mouth This is one of the many information that you don t get from watching the movie.Who could forget the red little girl Red dress Red hat Tiny red boots This 3 y o girl innocently roaming around inside the ghetto while executions are happening left and right while horse riding Oscar and his girlfriend are watching from atop of the hill She survived the Holocaust and when she saw the movie, she identified herself to the press She is Genia Dresner cousin to another character, Danka Dresner the 14 y o bespectacled girl who also survived the holocaust together with her mother, Chaja Dresner and father, Juda Dresner It s just that I cannot find a copy of Danka s picture to remind you of her I also failed to find Lisiek s Lisiek is that 8 y o boy who Amon shoots while traversing the field inside the concentration camp because he fails to clean the stain in Amon s bathtub.If I keep on giving you what I learned from this book, I will have a very long review I also find enjoyed the last parts of the book giving the information on what happened to Oscar and Emily Schindler his legal wife after the war very interesting Of course, you should know that Oscar Schindler is not a saintly person and so the moral is that even how bad some people seem to be, there is something good in them Sometimes, God provides the opportunity for us to do good things to others When He come knocking, harden not your hearts You may not have a tree in the Avenue of Righteous people but it always pays to be a good person I was sort of familiar with the Schindler legacy probably seen the film 5 or 6 times Isn t it peculiar that although it is regarded as one of the best biographies films of all time it hardly ever makes it on any person s personal favorites lists Blame the subject matter entirely So this is basically a reading that concentrates most of its attention on all the details that Steven Spielberg failed to bring to the screen Because that inevitably occurs with all adaptations.Well, this is almos I was sort of familiar with the Schindler legacy probably seen the film 5 or 6 times Isn t it peculiar that although it is regarded as one of the best biographies films of all time it hardly ever makes it on any person s personal favorites lists Blame the subject matter entirely So this is basically a reading that concentrates most of its attention on all the details that Steven Spielberg failed to bring to the screen Because that inevitably occurs with all adaptations.Well, this is almost an encyclopedia The astonishing amount of research that went into this project boggles the mind it is a full lifetime I m plagued with an image of a skeleton being dressed up with flesh and meat like giving a body of fleshy substance to a ghost.What I didn t know about Oskar Schindler the Schindler jews 1 Schindler s adolescence was unique son of rich Roman Catholics charming he was a fan of motorbike racing 2 the original proposal all Jews were going to be relocated far far away to Madagascar 3 some Jews approved of the ghetto at first since they thought that they would be free to worship and carry out their affairs with the enemies outside of the walls.4 if you were OD failed to deliver a family to the SS, then yours would be forfeit thus, the motivation for Jews to turn against each other 5 there were other Schindler like saviors, millionaires who gave up everything to save lives, though their stories are told ELSEWHERE.6 the book givesin depth biographies of the survivors, like those of Poldek Pfefferberg and Amon s maid, Helen Hirsch.7 RESISTANCE hinted at in the film here, it is noted that something very similar to what occurs in Tarantino s Inglorious Basterds occurred in real life rebels did destroy the only SS only cinema 8 the little girl in the red coat For the film it is an emblem of hope, a very visual reminder The book tells us that her name was Genia it is because Schindler sees her from the hilltop, sees the determination in her and that invisible string that carries her to safety after the Aktion of the ghetto, that he gives up his life to the cause Why does she survive She s immune, like a Virgil that can accompany us down into the underworld unscathed Because no one shields her from the horror of the massacre, because nobody cares for censorship or human dignity, because she is ALONE it is that Schindler becomes Schindler lastly, I would add that the book is somewhatdigestible than the movie It still allows for the throat to constrict and for shivers to cover the entire body I cannot pick one over the other since they both masterfully voice and embody the testament this great man left behind Schindler s Ark Schindler s
