Adapted from the novel by Thomas Keneally, Steven Spielberg's masterful film tells the incredible true story of the courageous Oskar Schindler (Liam Neeson).
So aside from my normal days, I spent the last several reading Schindlers List by Thomas Keneally, The Winds Of War by Herman Wouk, Inside The Third Reich by Albert Speer and assorted essays by Eli Weisel. I didn' read these to garner any personal satisfaction, as with the material there really isn't any to be had. I read these out of a need to understand TRUE facism, as opposed to that touted by disidents around the country. I challenge them to do like wise. It's not wise to neglect the mistakes of the past, just as it isn't wise to call something by a name, that it truly isn't.
An unsung hero – He Fengshan – China’s Schindler Posted on November 3, 2011by herschelian If it were not for the book ‘Schindler’s Ark’ by Thomas Keneally, which was subsequently made into an award-winning film by Steven Spielberg, I doubt whether many of us would have ever heard of Oskar Schindler, the German who managed to save a thousand Jews from the Holocaust. Recently I discovered that there was a Chinese man, He Fengshan, whose story is as remarkable as that of Schindler if not more so. He Fengshan (also known as Feng-Shan *** was born in a town called Yiyang in Hunan province on 10th September 1901. His father died when he was a child of seven, and the family were left extremely poor. He was obviously an able lad academically, He Fengshan and with help from Northern Lutheran missionaries he managed to attend school and then get into the Yale -in-China University in Changshan. He then went on to the Ludwig-Maximilian University in Munich from where he graduated with a PhD in Politics an ...

TAMIL FREEDOM RIDE READY TO ROLL Melbourne, Tuesday – Another Greens MP – NSW’s John Kaye -- has joined the ever-growing list of supporters of the Boycott Sri Lanka Cricket Campaign as the inaugural Tamil Freedom Ride prepares to depart on its inaugural 1500-kilometre journey this weekend.   The convoy of protesters will take its case for a world boycott of the Sri Lankan cricket team to country people in Ballarat, Horsham and Bordertown on Saturday on the way from Melbourne to the Adelaide Oval for the day/night international between Australia and Sri Lanka on Sunday.    “Continuing engagement on the cricket pitch adds a layer of respectability to the regime which it does not deserve” Kaye said in his endorsement note. Kaye joins many prominent Australians and international figures, including famous Australian author Thomas Keneally,  chair of the Sydney Peace Foundation, Professor Stuart Rees, and highly-acclaimed US international law expert, Professor Francis A.Boyle, on a long list of en ...
Press Release by Tamil Refugee Council FAMOUS AUSTRALIAN AUTHOR BACKS CRICKET BOYCOTT December 22, 2012 Melbourne, Saturday --Celebrated Australian author and sports nut, Thomas Keneally, has backed the Boycott Sri Lankan Cricket campaign, which is aimed at highlighting the persecution of the minority Tamils in the small island nation. The campaign kicks off on Boxing Day at 9 a.m. at the MCG, with a peaceful rally on the opening day of the second Test between Australia and Sri Lanka. Keneally, who was joined on the endorsement list by Sydney Peace Foundation chair, Stuart Rees, said yesterday that after reading a letter put out by the Refugee Action Collective and the Tamil Refugee Council he had no doubts about backing the campaign. “All the matters your letter raised are issues we can’t pretend about anymore, and if our government keeps up with their present tricks, they may be subject to bans and blacklistings, too,” Keneally said. The letter seeking endorsement, says, in part: “There will be ...
Aye, if you're on my fb, you're bound to know a thing or two about Eritrea. ;) Thomas Keneally, the author of the "Shindler's List", on Eritrea: Most of you know a book “Schindler’s List”, by the world’s renowned author, Thomas Keneally. The book is later filmed by no other than Steven Spielberg, and is one of the most fasinating WWII stories ever. But, not many of you know the same author has wr itten a book on Eritrea, titeled “To Asmara”, also a best-seller when it first published in 1989. The book was written way before Eritrean Independence and is mainly about the Eritrean Revolution. Below are some paragrphas from the book. Thomas Keneally in his own words: “Do you know what the emergency really is? You want to hear about the really big emergency? The emergency is that if you guys [Eritreans] succeed, you’ll be an embarrassment to Africa. Who wants a setup like yours? There aren’t many governments on this continent that do. There aren’t many governments in Europe. Colored folk wh ...

The amount of 'Eccentricity' in a society has generally been proportional to the amount of genius, mental vigor, and moral courage it contained. That so few now dare to be 'Eccentric' marks the chief danger of the time. - John Stuart Mill If you're poor and you do something stupid, you're nuts. If you're rich and do something stupid, you're 'Eccentric'. - Bobby Heenan Eccentric doesn't bother me. 'Eccentric' being a poetic interpretation of a mathematical term meaning something that doesn't follow the lines - that's okay. - Crispin Glover I was born into the most remarkable and 'Eccentric' family I could possibly have hoped for. - Maureen O'Hara Everybody thought I was a bit of an eccentric for wanting to be out there looking at the stars, but I still do. - Brian May You know, so I was a weird 'Eccentric' kid but I did believe in the power of the word and of the word being made flesh I suppose, which again I suppose came from my temperament as well as my upbringing. - Thomas Keneally 'Y'
