A Noah of Our Days: Around Him Mythologies Arose

Elisa Morera de la Vall

Abstract


From the pages of Thomas Keneally’s best seller, Schindler’s Ark, emerges the seductive figure of a modern hero of mythical proportions, the German Oskar Schindler who rescued over 1000 Jews from the hands of the Nazis and certain death. This Noah of our days sheltered his Jewish workers in an ark of salvation, his factory ‘Emalia’, and originated a legend further popularized by Steven Spielberg’s film.
