Oscar Schindler was all that stood between 1,200 jews and death at the hands of the Nazis.  He started by earning millions as a war profiteer and ended by spending his last pennys and risking his life to save his Jews. An ordinary man who even in the worst of circumstances did extraordinary things, matched by no one. He remained true to his Jews, the workers he referred to as my children. In the shadow of Auschwitz he kept the SS out and everyone alive.

If you haven't seen Schindler's List,a Steven Speilburg movie, then you probably don't know who Oscar Schindler is but remember one thing he saved many Jews during the Holo cost a true hero of a man. I recommend this movie!
