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.
DIRECTOR CAMEO (Steven Spielberg): A liberated Schindler Jew among the hundreds crossing a field near the end of the film.
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.
Polish fonts were used in the credits sequence
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."
