Note: 
A celebrated figure in the aftermath of Keneally's novel and Spielberg's film, Schindler was not an admirable man in many ways. He was an alcoholic, an adulterer, a Nazi Party member and a war profiteer employing slave labor. Yet, he took enormous risks to save Jews and is credited with saving over 1,000 lives. The author records Schindler's deeds while describing the events of World War II and the progress of the Final Solution. Roiberts probes the conflicting instincts within Schindler's psyche and his possible motivations. Photographs and reference aids are included. Part of Rosen's Holocaust Biography sereis.
