Abstract

of doing the assigned job. It was assumed that the prefix--"ange" meant "angestellt"--or employed when, in fact, it often meant "angelernt"--semi-skilled. In this way, many Jewish workers were protected. Pemper's story does not end with the liberation of the camps. Many of the details pertaining to the events and people he depicted do not fall into place until during the trials of the main players--especially of Amon Göth in 1946. Pemper also testified at the trials of other possibly lesser known figures like Gerhard Mauer, who had directed the department that controlled work assignments for prisoners. The Road to Rescue is essential reading for the many readers of Keneally's Schindler's List and for those who have seen Spielberg's film adaptation. The tone of this memoir is not corrective but rather instructive. His testimony gives straightforward facts and data that shed light on how Schindler's list was compiled. This list was certainly not the usual ubiquitous item associated with the camps, mostly for deportation purposes. Pemper corroborates and elucidates the efforts of Oskar Schindler's mission and in so doing, neither diminishes nor embellishes the function of his list in that rescue. Schindler himself is also not diminished. Pemper's close-up
