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.
After Goeth attempts to shoot the rabbi only to have his pistol fail to fire he pulls a second semi-automatic pistol from his pocket to shoot the rabbi. After this pistol also fails to fire several times Goeth hits the rabbi and walks away dropping the pistol on the ground. The pistol that he drops is a revolver and not the semi-automatic he removed from his pocket.
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.
