Reviews

The New York Times Book Review

"A deepening of the story. . . . Pemper argues that the 'crucial accomplishment' was not the list itself but 'the multifarious acts of resistance that, like tiny stones being placed into a mosaic one by one, had made the whole process possible'...Pemper devotes most of his carefully written book to the numerous small initiatives that, in his telling, played a part in the rescue effort."

Kirkus Reviews

"A former inmate of the concentration camp that provided slave labor to Oskar Schindler's factory informatively recounts the compilation of the businessman's famous list....Compelling."

Booklist

"Pemper's memoir is the powerful story of one man's stand against the slaughter of Jews."

Publishers Weekly

"Suspenseful...Pemper's book is careful and sad, telling of both triumph and the inability to get over the grief."
