Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A truly heroic story of the war and, like the tree planted in Oskar Schindler’s honor in Jerusalem, a fitting memorial to the fight of one individual against the horror of Nazism.” Simon Wiesenthal
“An astounding story…In this case the truth is far more powerful than anything the imagination could invent.” Newsweek
“An extraordinary tale…No summary can adequately convey the strategems and reverses and sudden twists of fortune…A notable achievement.” New York Review of Books
“A remarkable work of fiction…Keneally artfully depicts the courage and shrewdness of an unlikely savior, a man who is a flawed mixture of hedonism and decency and who, in the presence of unutterable evil, transcends the limits of his own humanity. ” Publishers Weekly
“Ben Kingsley…reads in a calculatedly matter-of-fact tone, letting the story’s power alone convey its complicated emotions. Highly recommended.” Library Journal
