Gr 8-Up A 15-page introduction tells about Schindler, who saved more than 1000 Jews from extermination by the Nazis during World War II by using them to work first in an enamelware factory and then in a factory that ostensibly produced munitions. Early chapters are taken from well-respected overviews of the Holocaust, and could be used with students as young as junior high age. The same can be said for Emilie Schindler's discussion of her husband or any of the other first-person accounts. However, the book also includes a significant number of high-level analyses by outside experts, including a psychiatrist, a philosopher, and an economist, that manage to make this fascinating man seem dull. The unevenness in the selections indicates two entirely different audiences. For a slightly younger age group, Jack L. Roberts's Oskar Schindler (Lucent, 1996) is far superior. -Paula J.
