News in Review Carl Lutz: The Swiss Schindler

During the Second World War, Oskar Schindler, a German industrialist and Nazi officer, was credited with saving 1,200 Jews. His story was told by director Steven Spielberg in the award-winning movie Schindler's List. Yet to this day, few know the name of Carl Lutz.

CBC reporter Laura Lynch talks to the historian who is telling Lutz’s remarkable story.
