Levemanden Oskar Schindler begyndte 2. verdenskrig som nazi-sympatisør, men endte som en legende, der ved list, bestikkelse og personligt mod gjorde tilværelsen tålelig og reddede livet for sine tvangsudskrevne jødiske arbejdere.

(16) Every year around this time, I do a re-read. This year, I read a book after I had seen the movie. In this case I saw the movie many, many years ago when it first came out in the theater and was incredibly moved. I see this book is classified as fiction, but it reads as if it were non-fiction, memoir and per the author's note, - it is very much based on a true story though does not claim to have all the details just right and parts of conversations are simply guessed at. I think calling it fiction is unfair. Schindler was a German war profiteer and businessman who employed Polish Jews in his enamelware factory that ultimately became a concentration camp. This story of this unlikely character giving up all his possessions and risking his life and livelihood to go against the monstrous grain and save as many people as he could is truly amazing. I still don't understand how such barbarous and inhuman things happened. Happened in a civilized country in very modern times. I haven't really dwelled on the Holocaust in a long time given the 24 hour news cycles and the everyday ostensible horrors that actually all pale in comparison to what happened.

You know it has to be a true story because Oskar Schindler was so far from perfect. His post-War life was a hot mess and his fidelity and habits are very much NOT Hollywood. Kennedy writes the book with simple prose and fairly declaratively. No melodrama, no poetry - but the facts really spoke for themselves and much of the artistic license he did take insightful. It was not overly graphic but there were some haunting images - the Musselmaen concept, the girl in the red cap, the teeth the jeweler had to appraise.

I can remember being speechless in the movie and I will watch again soon. One wonders if you would have the courage to truly stand up to evil. What do you tolerate to save your own skin and to hold on to your own well-being and family? The most powerful part about this book is the gradual acceptance of what was being done to Jewish people - first just restrictions, then loss of property, then forced to dwell elsewhere, then forced labor, then extermination of the weak, then just extermination. Even the people to whom it was happening were like the proverbial frogs in slowly heated up water. Excellent important story well written. A must read. ( )

I've wanted to read this book since coming back from Poland, where we spent most of our time in Cracow. My abiding memories of our visit centre on our stay in the former Jewish quarter of Kazimierz, and of visiting the former ghetto in Podgórze, and of course Auschwitz-Birkenau. This background informed my reading and my appreciation of this book.

This illuminating account has at its heart the extraordinary character of Schindler, womaniser, bon-viveur, heavy drinker, businessman ..... and saviour of the Jews. He's an unlikely hero: audacious, willing to resort to bribery, and entirely unrelenting once he had got the bit between his teeth. Set alongside his story is that of the Jews of Krakow, their personal histories, degradations and gradual loss of autonomy. And the stories of his wife and lovers, and the German high command whom he had to keep on side to achieve his objective of saving the Jews whom he was able to employ.

This is an uncomfortable, painful book to read. But for an understanding of the humiliations and suffering of the Jewish people under Nazi occupation and beyond, and for a glimpse at the lives of those heroes (and Schindler wasn't alone) who made a difference to the fates of some of them, this is unbeatable.

Anche se tutti avranno già visto il capolavoro di Spielberg e quindi lo sapranno già, il libro racconta la vita dell'industriale tedesco Oskar Schindler dal 1939 nella Polonia occupata dai nazisti.
Più lento di quanto mi aspettassi nella prima parte, il libro prende giri col passare delle pagine e ricostruisce la azioni di Schindler che, inizialmente nazista convinto anche lui, vede aumentare col tempo gli orrori operati dalle SS e matura parallelamente una repulsione verso il regime e le atrocità dei campi di concentramento.
Man mano che si rafforzano le sue convinzioni, anche le sue scelte diventano sempre più azzardate e pericolose, volte a ingannare il sistema dall'interno nel tentativo di aiutare il popolo ebraico ed alleviarne le sofferenze per quanto possibile.
Innumerevoli gli episodi in cui Schindler riesce a sottrarre prigionieri ebrei dalle grinfie delle SS e dai campi di concentramento tramite vari sotterfugi, inganni e "regali" ai funzionari giusti.
Tutto il libro è stato scritto grazie ai ricordi dei sopravvissuti, agli scritti di Schindler e ai documenti custoditi allo Yad Vashem, il memoriale della Shoah di Gerusalemme.
È certamente un po' crudo in alcune descrizioni, ma non poteva essere diversamente.
Emozionante e commovente, lo metto sul podio dei migliori libri dedicati all'Olocausto insieme a "Se questo è un uomo" di Primo Levi e "La banalità del bene" di Enrico Deaglio (altro libro incredibile che ricostruisce la storia di Giorgio Perlasca, lo Schindler italiano).
Non ho dubbi, oggi più che mai, che sia un libro necessario... per non dimenticare. ( )

Sono stata molto contenta di questa lettura di gennaio con LiberTiAmo: sebbene avessi visto il film di Spielberg anni e anni fa (talmente tanti da ricordarmelo a malapena, in effetti), non mi ero mai avvicinata al libro.

Sulla storia, niente da dire, naturalmente: Oscar Schindler e sua moglie Emilie figurano tra i Giusti tra le nazioni per aver salvato un migliaio di persone ebree dalla Shoah, usando i loro agganci e le loro risorse, senza risparmiarsi e senza mai rassegnarsi all’orrore e alla crudeltà gratuita.

Sullo stile con il quale Keneally ha raccontato la storia, devo dire che in alcuni punti mi è sembrato meno appassionante, nonostante le vicende narrate siano così significative. Penso di essere rimasta infastidita dal fatto che si tratta di un non-fiction novel, mentre avrei preferito leggere un non-fiction ‘puro’ – per così dire – che nella mia testa sarebbe stato più adatto per questa storia. Giusto nella mia testa, visto che La lista di Schindler ha vinto il Booker Prize nel 1982: deve essere colpa del mio potente amore per la saggistica. ( )

Most people have at least heard of this book, or the movie that was made from it, about the war profiteer turned savior of over a thousand Jews during WWII. I watched the movie in high school and then tried to read the book, but gave up due to how long and dry it was. That's probably the biggest mark against the book for most people--it's slow and plodding for at least the first several chapters. And throughout the entire book, the narrative is bogged down by so many names of locations and people, all of which are foreign to at least some of us (mostly Polish names, some German) and difficult to pronounce. However, I'm not sure Keneally should have done it differently, and if that is the only downside to the whole book, I would say there's a lot of reason to push through it and keep going. It does pick up a little after some of the early chapters, and in the end, I'm really glad I read it.

One thing that's always struck me about Schindler, and did even more so while reading this, is that he's not necessarily the type of person you would picture as a "savior." He was gruff, prone to fits of anger, and frankly had absolutely no respect for women at all. And yet, when he saw injustice and brutality happening, he was spurred into action. And while his motives for helping are examined multiple times in the book, it's clear that it's not just a matter of profit that he fights to keep his workers, considering the lengths he goes to at times to not just keep them but also to keep the SS from brutalizing them in his factory.

Though Schindler's actions are the focal point, the book also takes an up-close look at some of the people eventually saved by him. The book reads like a series of vignettes about Schindler himself and various of the different Schindlerjuden (Schindler Jews). Keneally states that he did his best to include only facts, while filling in conversation here and there, but because he couldn't possibly have every single detail, the story at times reads more like looking down on a scene, rather than being right there in it while it happens, as we've come to expect from novels. He makes it clear, though, when he couldn't corroborate a story, that it might be more legend than fact, and even this only happens a few times. Overall, the book is a fascinating, heartbreaking, and clear picture of one man who was completely unextraordinary most of his life, yet did an incredibly extraordinary thing during a dark and terrifying time in human history. Whether you've seen the movie or not, I recommend reading this book to pretty much everyone who's remotely interested in the subject matter, even if it does take you some time to get through it. It's worth it. ( )

THE versatile Australian novelist, Thomas Keneally, tells the true story of Schindler's rescue effort in this remarkable book which has the immediacy and the almost unbearable detail of a thousand eyewitnesses who forgot nothing. The story is not only Schindler's. It is the story of Cracow's dying ghetto and the forced labor camp outside of town, at Plaszow.

In Poland's deepest autumn, a tall young man in an expensive overcoat, double-breasted dinner jacket beneath it and - in the lapel of the dinner jacket - a large ornamental gold-on-black enamel Hakenkreuz (swastika) emerged from a fashionable apartment building in Straszewskiego Street, on the edge of the ancient center of Cracow, and saw his chauffeur waiting with fuming breath by the open door of an enormous and, even in this blackened world, lustrous Adler limousine. [Prologue]
[Author's Note] In 1980 I visited a luggage store in Beverly Hills, California, and inquired the prices of briefcases.
General Sigmund List's armored divisions, driving north from the Sudetenland, had taken the sweet south Polish jewel of Cracow from both flanks on September 6, 1939.
[Epilogue] Oskar's high season ended now.

This is the novel Schindler's Ark, also published as Schindler's List. It is neither Schindler's List / Piano Solos nor the movie Schindler's List. Despite similar titles, the three media are separate works and should not be combined with each other. Only the novel Schindler's List (Schindler's Ark) should be combined here.
