To 1200 Jews a womanizing, heavy-drinking, German-Catholic industrialist and Nazi Party member named Oskar Schindler was all that stood between them and death at the hands of the Nazis. He was a man all too human, full of flaws like the rest of us. The unlikeliest of all role models. An ordinary man who answered the call of conscience. He remained true to 'his' Jews, the workers he always referred to as 'my children'. He rose to the highest level of humanity and gave them a second chance at life. He spent millions to protect them, everything he possessed, and eventually risked his life in desperate rescue attempts. Even on the days when the air was black with the ashes from bodies on fire, there was hope in Crakow because Oskar Schindler was there.

In those years, millions of Jews were exposed to ruthless slaughter in the Nazi death camps, but Schindler's Jews miraculously survived. Today there are more than 8,500 descendants of his Jews living in the US, Europe and Israel.

Oskar Schindler died in Hildesheim in Germany October 9, 1974. He wanted to be buried in Jerusalem. As he said: My children are here .. 

He died penniless, but he earned the everlasting gratitude of his Jews. He was mourned on four continents and generations will remember him for what he did.

A story to bear witness to goodness, love and compassion, an inspiring evidence of human decency.

But
Oskar Schindler not only saved the lives of 1200 Jews - he saved our faith in humanity ...

- Louis Bülow

The memory of all these people needs to be kept alive. The events that took place should never be forgotten. The depth of the horror always brings me to tears and wonderment as to how human beings could do this to other human beings. Satan himself had to be behind it all, but so thankful for people such as Schindler who risked everything to save.

watched Schindler\'s List last night.........so difficult and necessary to watch, especially for me since my parents are Holocaust surrivors...3 of my grandparents were murdered at Auschwitz and it made me think about them entering that place..........and to think that some twist of fate was at work and my parents escaped with their lives and met and because of that here I am..........NEVER AGAIN

Schindler\'s story is a beautiful example of how God can use anyone to fulfill His purposes. The Bible is filled with such stories about flawed human beings who were used for the greater good, sometimes led kicking and screaming toward their destiny. He may have been a lousy husband and businessman, but instead of just another screw-up dying in obscurity, he and Mrs. Schindler will be remembered forever.

Romanian jews were sent in concentration camps all over the Europe and it was horrible. I know a few old men who are still talking about that period of time while they were trapped in the camps. Sometimes they are crying.... What Mr. Schindler did was astonishing and brave. He really is the hero every person on the planet must know about. He is the hero we need nowadays... Thank you Mr. Schindler for saving them. Thanks to you, humanity knows that back in that time there were good persons too
