Waterstones Says

Disturbing, harrowing and yet also deeply inspiring in its depiction of humanity and moral action, Schindler’s Ark holds a special place in the twentieth-century literary canon. The winner of 1982’s Booker Prize endures as a compassionate and thoughtful account of heroism in the face of a barbaric regime and its horrifying ‘final solution.’

Winner of the Booker Prize 1982

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. Made into the award-winning film Schindler's List.
