Oskar Schindler: Saving Jews from the Holocaust

( 1 )

Overview

"Oskar Schindler was a man who enjoyed fast living. He liked to race motorcycles, and his wife thought he drank too much. Schindler joined the Nazi party to make money, and even became a spy for the promise of danger. After the Nazi invasion of Poland, Schindler made plans to start a business there and become rich.

Overview

"Oskar Schindler was a man who enjoyed fast living. He liked to race motorcycles, and his wife thought he drank too much. Schindler joined the Nazi party to make money, and even became a spy for the promise of danger. After the Nazi invasion of Poland, Schindler made plans to start a business there and become rich. Instead, he saw the plight of the Polish Jews: the forced labor, the Nazi brutality, and the executions. He could not let these things happen without trying to make a difference." Author Ann Byers explores the life of this unusual rescuer: a Nazi businessman who spent his fortune and risked his life to save as many Jews as possible. Through the words of those he protected, the story of how Schindler used his factory as a shelter for over twelve hundred Jews-and how they honor his bravery-is revealed. Book jacket.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 6-8-The lack of expertise and knowledge and the inadequate research performed by both authors is clearly evident in these titles. Byers's writing is dense, confusing, and boring. She barely mentions anti-Semitism and fails to explain the reasons for, or events leading up to, Hitler's Final Solution, making it impossible for readers to understand Oskar Schindler's actions and motivations. Most alarming, however, is her footnote for an article by David Irving, an extremely vocal Holocaust denier. In addition to poor writing, Worth's account of Himmler is riddled with misrepresentations, misleading statements, oversimplifications, and distortions, consisting not only of incorrect information but also of the inclusion of irrelevant material at the expense of significant facts. And, in the last sentence of the book, Worth concludes that "Himmler created the Holocaust," an absurd overstatement. While other scholars and sources have called him the "architect" of the Holocaust, Worth can not conclude that Himmler singlehandedly created it without discussing Hitler, the history of anti-Semitism, and other significant and important facts about life in Germany after World War I-none of which are covered.-Rachel Kamin, Temple Israel Libraries & Media Center, West Bloomfield, MI Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
