Schindler Historian to Speak at JSU

Steven Spielberg’s 1993 film Schindler’s List inspired Dr. David Crowe, a history professor at Elon University, but not in the ways one might assume. Crowe left the film wondering about its protagonist, Oskar Schindler, whose actions saved the lives of more than 1,000 Jews held in a Nazi concentration camp.

He embarked on more than seven years of research, work that led him on fact-finding trips to Germany, Argentina and Israel. Crowe’s work, "Oskar Schindler: The Untold Account of His Life, Wartime Activities, and the True Story Behind The List," was published in 2004. The biography reveals previously unknown details about Schindler and challenges some of the dramatizations from Steven Spielberg’s film, Crowe said. See story at The Anniston Star's website:
