Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“There is nothing like a fresh reading of a classic to breathe new life into its message. Humphrey Bower’s graceful narration of Keneally’s audiobook is just such a milestone. The story of Oskar Schindler is well known: He was a patriotic German and member of the Nazi party who managed to save more than 1,200 Jews by bringing them to work in his enamelware factory in Poland. (As part of the war effort, Jews engaged in such work were exempted from deportation.) Bower has a pleasing tone and cadence, and perfectly pronounces a daunting array of German, Polish, and Yiddish words. Even for those already familiar with this story, it is well worth the time to revisit this treasure of compassion and bravery.” AudioFile
“An astounding story…In this case the truth is far more powerful than anything the imagination could invent.” Newsweek
