Helen Hirsch is based on Helen Jonas (nee Sternlicht), whose story is shown in the documentary Inheritance (2006).
When one train of the male Jews were taken to Czechoslovakia, we can see some electric columns for electric rail tracks. At that time and place, all locomotives were steam-engine.
There are no opening credits after the title is shown.
At the end of the sequence in which the family is kicked out of their apartment and forced into the ghetto, while Oskar Schindler moves in to their former home, a stream of fellow Jews pour through the family's new apartment. In the theatrical version, they each greeted the displaced family by saying "Shalom." However, before the film came to video, it was realized that Polish Jews would not have said this Hebrew word, so the line from each Jew was re-dubbed to the Polish "Dzien Dobry."
