Have you ever done something to help another at your own risk? Maybe you realized you could suffer consequences, but you took a risk anyway to do the right thing. Schindler’s List is the story of a real man who took a tremendous risk to save over a thousand Jewish people during the Holocaust.
The famous film Schindler’s List was adapted from the book Schindler’s Ark by Thomas Keneally that was published in Australia in 1982, but then was released as Schindler’s List in the United States the same year. The book is believed to be based on a true story as was told by Schindler’s friend Pfefferberg to Keneally in his later years. The author took creative license and invented some facts that Pfefferberg didn’t know.
