SCHINDLER’S LEGACY

The Jewish Chronicle - - Comment -

The Tal­mu­dic maxim “he who saves one life saves the world en­tire” ( Ju­daism, April 20) was in­scribed on the ring given to Oskar Schindler by his Jews. At that point Schindler, as a mem­ber of the Nazi party, was com­pelled to flee in or­der to es­cape pros­e­cu­tion. He saved some 1,000 Jews. The Schindler­ju­den de­scen­dants now amount to more than 7,000 — not “the world en­tire,” but as much as one man could pos­si­bly do. Barry Bor­man Edg­ware­bury Lane, Edg­ware, HA8
