R | | Biography, Drama, History
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 extras were not all of Jewish descent but Germans as well. Most extras volunteered without being paid to be part of the film.
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).
The end credits are shot in black and white.
The Amblin Entertainment logo is absent and in its place instead is the credit: "From Amblin Entertainment".
The MPAA Rated R logo at the end does not have the regular blue background and is shown over the black screen.
