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.
In 2007, the American Film Institute ranked this as the #8 Greatest Movie of All Time, and Steven Spielberg's greatest film.
When Rudolph Höss meets with Schindler, Höss states that I.G. Farben needs labor for "his chemical factory" as if the name were for a specific person. I.G. Farben was in fact the name of an industrial conglomerate and the not the name for one particular individual.
The theatrical version juxtaposed images from the film of the actors portraying certain identified "Schindler Jews" as each actual person placed a stone on Schindler's grave. The VHS version does not use this device, showing only the actual persons, credited by name.
