The Making of Schindler's List: Behind the Scenes of an Epic Film
When the film Schindler's List was first released in 1993, it was acclaimed as both a motion picture masterpiece and a reaffirmation of the human spirit. It won awards for Best Picture from all major film critics' societies and eventually won the Academy Award for Best Picture of the Year. The Making of Schinder's List, originally published in Poland, is at times a chronicle, at times a diary, and at times an appreciation of the massive undertaking of the film's creation. Franciszek Palowski, the writer of this book, was selected by Steven Spielberg as a technical consultant to the production. He served as the director's adviser in recreating the city of Krakow, the concentration camps, the Schindler enamelware factory, and, most important, the relationships among Oskar Schindler and Amon Goeth and the Jews whom Schindler saved from death. Survivors of the 1,200 men and women known as Schindler's Jews traveled from all over the world to participate in making the dramatic version of the 1942 events and helped to convey their reality.
