Oskar Schindler was a German industrialist and owner of the enamelware factory in Krakow that he bought in 1939. He employed mostly Jews, who were expected to be paid considerably less than Polish workers. But soon, not economy reasons, but good will and deep care about his Jewish employees’ fate, influenced Schindler’s decision to protect them. Oskar Schindler used his personal connections inside the Nazi Party and German authorities to secure relative safety for his workers. He lost almost all of his fortune on bribes he gave to Nazi officials in order to protect as many Jews as he could.

His actions became widely known for 1993’s Steven Spielberg film, “Schindler’s List”. Its title relates to the list of 1200 names of Jewish inmates from Plaszow concentration camp. Schindler rescued them under the pretext of moving them as his employees to the new factory. Thanks to the “Schindler’s List”, 1200 people were saved from certain death. For his actions, Oskar Schindler was named Righteous Among the Nations by Israel.
