In German-occupied Poland during World War II, Oskar Schindler gradually becomes concerned for his Jewish workforce after witnessing their persecution by the Nazi Germans.
The song being played when Schindler enters the nightclub and meets all of the Nazi officials is called "Por Una Cabeza". The same song is played as the tango in True Lies (1994) and Scent of a Woman (1992).
When Rabbi Levartov lights the candles during a small Sabbath service at Schindler's factory in Czechoslovakia, he uses the wrong blessing. Instead of chanting "l'hadlik ner shel Shabbat" (the blessing over the Sabbath candles) he chants "bo'rei p'ri hagafen" (the blessing over wine).
