IBNA- A new Persian translation of the award-winning biographical novel 'Schindler's List'by Australian writer Thomas Keneally has been published and is available in Iranian bookstores.
According to IBNA correspondent, the Thomas Keneally’s book has been translated into Persian again by Mahboubeh Mehr-Afarid and released by Jomhouri Publishing in Tehran. The earlier Persian translation of the work was released by Saman Publishing 19 years ago.

Keneally wrote a number of well received novels before and after ‘Schindler's List’; however, it has since gone on to become his most well-known and celebrated work.
The novel is a Booker Prize-winning historical fiction novel which was also awarded the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for Fiction in 1983.
‘Schindler's List’ was later adapted into the highly successful movie directed by Steven Spielberg.
