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.
Steven Spielberg gave Liam Neeson home movies of his mentor Steve Ross, the late chairman of Time Warner, to help him develop his portrayal of Schindler.
When they were labeling the box with 'war material' label, the label was clearly printed with a printer, which has not been invented then.
Polish fonts were used in the credits sequence
In an unprecedented move, when this film was broadcast on US television by NBC in 1997, it was, at Steven Spielberg's insistence, shown nearly uncensored (a sex scene was slightly edited) with all violence and nudity intact. It was the first program to air with the then new "TV-M" (now "TV-MA") rating. See also: Saving Private Ryan (1998).
