Oskar Schindler è stato un imprenditore tedesco, famoso per aver salvato durante la seconda guerra mondiale circa 1.100 ebrei dallo sterminio , con il pretesto di impiegarli come personale necessario allo sforzo bellico presso la sua fabbrica di utensili, la D.E.F. , situata in via Lipowa n. 4, nel distretto industriale di Zablocie, a Cracovia.

L'intera vicenda fu divulgata al grande pubblico grazie all'incontro tra lo scrittore australiano Thomas Keneally e il negoziante Leopold Pfefferberg , un sopravvissuto allo sterminio grazie a Schindler e del quale, dopo la guerra, divenne fraterno amico. Keneally fu colpito dalla storia e, stabiliti vari contatti con gli altri Schindlerjuden , nel 1982 scrisse il romanzo La lista di Schindler da cui, successivamente, fu tratto il celebre film del 1993 Schindler's List, diretto da Steven Spielberg.

Frasi Oskar Schindler

„The persecution of Jews in occupied Poland meant that we could see horror emerging gradually in many ways.“

—  Oskar Schindler
Context: The persecution of Jews in occupied Poland meant that we could see horror emerging gradually in many ways. In 1939, they were forced to wear Jewish stars, and people were herded and shut up into ghettos. Then, in the years '41 and '42 there was plenty of public evidence of pure sadism. With people behaving like pigs, I felt the Jews were being destroyed. I had to help them. There was no choice. Interview at Am Hauptbahn No. 4 in Frankfurt Am Main, West Germany (1964), quoted in The Oscar Schindler Story (2012) http://www.auschwitz.dk/id2.htm.
