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. Tens of thousands of Hungarian Jews owe their lives to this modest Swiss diplomat, among them two Canadians who were helpless children caught up in the racial hatred of the Holocaust. CBC reporter Laura Lynch talks to the historian who is telling Lutz’s remarkable story.
