Oskar Schindler is a vain and greedy German businessman who becomes an unlikely humanitarian amid the barbaric German Nazi reign when he feels compelled to turn his factory into a refuge for Jews. Based on the true story of Oskar Schindler who managed to save about 1100 Jews from being gassed at the Auschwitz concentration camp, it is a testament to the good in all of us.Written by

When Goeth tries to execute the rabbi, he pulls a semi-automatic pistol from his pocket. When it doesn't fire, he manually recharges the weapon by pulling back the slide. The very first time he does so, a cartridge is ejected from the weapon, but each time he racks the slide after that, the weapon fails to eject a cartridge, meaning that the magazine was empty.

At the end of the sequence in which the family is kicked out of their apartment and forced into the ghetto, while Oskar Schindler moves in to their former home, a stream of fellow Jews pour through the family's new apartment. In the theatrical version, they each greeted the displaced family by saying "Shalom." However, before the film came to video, it was realized that Polish Jews would not have said this Hebrew word, so the line from each Jew was re-dubbed to the Polish "Dzien Dobry." See more »
I can honestly say that this is one of the truly great films. The way it creates and image of one of the most tragic periods of human history both educates and moves us as well as providing a fitting testament to those who died, and because it deals with a subject which will never be forgotten it is a film which will always be relevant, thus making it a timeless work which throughly deserves the recognition that it received.
