Quotes

Krakow registrar: Name?


Goofs

When the Nazis are separating healthy and sick prisoners, they play two shellac records. The second disc is labeled "Fogg Records", but Mieczyslaw Fogg founded his record company after the war; moreover Fogg recorded mostly (if not only) Polish performers at his studio, and that song doesn't resemble a Polish song.


Crazy Credits

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.
