A memoir of Tom's journey around the world to discover the complete story of Oskar Schindler and those on his now-famous list.

In 1980, Tom Keneally walkted into a store in Beverly Hills owned by Polish Jew Leopold Pfefferberg Page to buy a new briefcase. For the next few years, Tom's life was taken over by this charismatic and driven man, known as Poldek, and the story he wanted shared. The resulting book was Schindler's Ark, which went on to win the Booker Prize and ultimately became the Oscar-award-winning film Schindler's List.

Tom and Poldek travelled across the US, Germany, Israel, Austria and Poland, interviewing survivors and discovering their extraordinary stories. Searching For Schindler is very much Tom's journey; he reflects on his early days as a successful but less than confident writer, and thow this book, the film it became and the people he met, changed his and his family's lives forever.

"Had I read Searching For Schindler before making the film, I may have made it an hour longer. I owe you so much. The world owes you more." - Steven Spielberg
