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 Thomas Keneally novel on which the film is based was titled "Schindler's Ark".
Oskar Schindler tells a guard, that only a kid can polish a 45 mm shell from inside. However, German army did not use 45 mm caliber guns at all (not counting a small quantity of captured Soviet tanks, for which the Germans did not manufacture ammunition anyway).
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.
