Schindler's List by Thomas Keneally is the true story of Oskar Schindler; a man of Europeon, non-Jewish Heritage, who migrated to Poland posing as a Nazi businessman seeking his fourtune due to the expenses of WWII. What he initially failed to discern was the Nazi intent of the 'Final Solution.' The power of the story lies within the truth. Schindler could not abide the insanity of the world inwhich he had so nearly become a part. Through accounts from actual survivors on Schindler's List (Schindlerjuden), Keneally has chronicled an historical masterpiece so we will never forget.
