During the Holocaust at the German concentration camp near Plaszow, thousands of Jews lost their lives at the hands of the Nazis. More than a thousand others would have been counted among the dead if not for a womanizing, heavy drinking, German-Catholic industrialist and Nazi Party member named Oskar Schindler.

One of the most remarkable narratives of the Holocaust, Schindler’s List masterfully recreates the daring exploits of Schindler, who used his enormous fortune to build a factory near the concentration camp and saved the lives of over 1,300 Jews. An absorbing, suspenseful, and moving account of Oskar Schindler’s legacy of life, this is an unforgettable audio program.

Quotes & Awards

  • “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

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Christie | 2/3/2014

    " This is a book everyone should read once in their lives, although they should probably be 16+ before doing so. I have never seen the movie, and never really heard the story. All I knew was that there was a German named Schindler who had some kind of list that saved a number of Jews at great personal risk. I didn't know any details, or how the story ended, or anything. The first couple chapters were boring, and seemed a lot like reading a history book, but it soon turned into a fascinating read about a man who was no saint, and who wasn't that remarkable of a person before the war, but who ended up doing amazing things. It's a tough read (I had to take breaks) but really thought-provoking. "

    " An interesting book that I did enjoy. A Booker prize winner "

    " I actually read this in one day. It was very moving. I believe that, though the movie was great and still one of my favorites, the book is much, much better. The maniacal commandant Amon Goeth was far worse if that's imaginable and though Schindler had his flaws ( womanizing, love of alcohol etc.) he was still a hero. Saving 1,100 jews from being victims in the holocaust, shows that good always prevails evil in the end. "

    " Interestingly enough, the movie was better "
