Overview
Canadian Journalist Herbert Steinhouse met Oskar Schindler in 1946; Schindler told Steinhouse his story. At first Steinhouse didn't believe Schindler's story, but by 1949, Steinhouse did believe Schindler and wrote an article "The Man Who Saved 1,000 Lives." That article pre-dates -- and validates all other Schindler research. That 1949 article and an interview with Steinhouse opens the book; there are sections devoted to Schindler, the book "Schindler's List," the award-winning film, and aspects of the Holocaust. This is a major contribution to Holocaust studies.
