Schindlerjuden


Schindlerjuden

Schindlerjuden, literally translated as "Schindler's Jews," were roughly 1,000 to 1,200 Jews who were saved by Oskar Schindler during the Holocaust. Their story has been depicted in the book "Schindler's Ark", and Steven Spielberg's film adaptation of the novel, "Schindler's List".

The end of the film shows actual, color footage of the Schindlerjuden depicted each putting a stone on Schindler's grave. They (or their surviving relative/s) are each accompanied by the actor who portrayed them as they do so. Other mourners in the scene include Schindler's widow, Emilie Schindler, and the actor who portrays Schindler himself in the film, Liam Neeson. Neeson is the last one to approach the grave, and instead of a stone he places two red roses in the center. Appropriately, he is accompanied by no one.

In 2006, there were estimated to be over 7,000 descendants of Schindler's Jews living in the US, Europe, and Israel. [ [http://www.europe-cities.com/krakow/schindler-story.aspx Schindler Story] www.europe-cities.com. Retrieved 9 September 2006. ]
