The movie, based on the novelized biography by Thomas Keneally, tells the real-life story of Oskar Schindler (Liam Neeson), a devil-may-care Nazi industrialist who yanked Polish Jews from the death machine to work in his enamelware factory in occupied Krakow. It was obvious to all that to be on Schindler's list was the difference between life and death.
When the Nazis' Final Solution led to the closure of the Plaszow
forced-labor camp in Krakow and its sub-camps, Schindler was
obliged to relocate his factory to the safer Brinnlitz, on the
Polish-Czechoslovakian border. By now sensitized to the horrors
of the Holocaust, Schindler claimed to need more than 1,100 Jews
for his new munitions
plant. He saved children by telling the Nazis only the young ones'
little hands could fit inside armament shells. -- Desson Howe
