Read Searching for Schindler Searching for Schindler Free download Ë 108 Ing charismatic and persistent he convinced Keneally to relate the incredible story of “the all drinking all screwing all black marketeering Nazi Oskar Schindler But to me he was Jesus Christ”   Searching for Schindler is the engrossing chronicle of Keneally’s pursuit of one of history’s most fascinating and paradoxical heroes Traveling throughout the United States Germany Israel Poland and Austria Keneally and Poldek interviewed people who had known Schindler and uncovered their indelible. This is a hard book I listened to the audiobook to rate because I loved the first 12 13 chapters which tell the story of how Keneally meets the wonderful larger than life Poldek and first learns about Schindler Poldek and his wife having been two of the Jews saved by him The following travels around the world from Poland to Australia US to Israel is fascinating as Keneally meets survivors collects documentation engages on a personal level with the Holocaust and thinks about how to write a book which even begins to do justice to this story Once the material is collected though the rest of this book the remaining 23 or so chapters is dull Keneally recounts boring details of his life his wife his teenage daughters exactly who he met at the Booker dinner name drops details from Spielberg s film and the Oscar ceremony rambles on about his other political interests Eritrea and Ethiopia The only bright moments are when Poldek is back on stage and his very moving death So the first third or so is an excellent introductioncompanion to Schindler s Ark which I ve somehow how never read but am reading now If this book had stuck to the Schindler material promised by the title I d have given it 4 5 stars instead it s a kind of memoir of Keneally s life from 1979 till about 1993 when the film won its Oscars Great start tailed off way too early

Read Searching for Schindler Searching for Schindler Free download Ë 108 This is the captivating story behind Schindler’s List the Booker Prize–winning book and the Academy Award–winning Spielberg film Keneally tells the tale of the unlikely encounter that propelled him to write about Oskar Schindler and of the impact of his extraordinary account on people around the world  Thomas Keneally met Leopold “Poldek” Pfefferberg the owner of a Beverly Hills luggage shop in 1981 Poldek a Polish Jew and a Holocaust survivor had a tale he wanted the world to know Charm. This book is precious something special to read This is the story of a man Poldeka victim of the Nazis who was saved by Oskar Schindler and eventually in California Beverly Hills had a very good business in handbags and briefcases His life s mission was to have a book then a film made about his hero and saviour whom he called his own personal Jesus Christ A chance meeting with the Australian Irish author Thomas Keneally who was in the store looking for a replacement briefcase brought it about Truly it s a story of how Poldek introduced Keneally to the great humanitarian Schindler and induced him to write about it How the two travelled through the US Europe and Israel putting the book together Then once it was written getting it made into a film a than decade long undertaking As Poldek said right from the beginning he wanted an Oscar for Oskar with the Booker Prize along the wayThe story of the writing of the book and making of the film is interlayered with Keneally s life in Australia and California and in Eritrea too The passages where he is both a reporter and later election observer in war torn Eritrea do have a certain resonance with the main story of the awful inhumanity that was the Holocaust The book personalising this period with names pictures and the updated often successful lives of those who thanks to Schindler were survivors makes the Holocaust real and horrific than the pictures of living skeletons and the piles of bodies of the documentariesIn the book there is a small story of Ralph Fiennes a fine actor and a man much greater spirited than myself Keneally had met him in the bar where the film people were gathered one evening and had signed a copy of Searching for Schindler for him Not knowing that Ralph was pronounced Rafe he had heard Ray and written the dedication accordingly Ralph Fiennes said nothing and later when Keneally found out he went and apologised for his gaucherie Years ago I had worked briefly for Ralph Fiennes famous explorer cousin Ranulph Fiennes and when I left he presented me with a book he had signed for me My name was spelled wrong I said something After all these years reading the greater generosity of Ralph Fiennes has made me embarrassed all over againThe five stars I ve rated this book should be golden and twinkling like beacons of light in a dark and overcast sky
