In German-occupied Poland during World War II, industrialist Oskar Schindler gradually becomes concerned for his Jewish workforce after witnessing their persecution by the Nazis.
While the Nazis are moving confiscated luggage, one of the bags is labelled "Sonnenschein". Ralph Fiennes (Amon Göth) appeared in the Holocaust movie Sunshine (1999) as Ignatz Sonnenschein.
When the gassing story is told in the women's barracks, one woman is seen to run her hands through her hair. On her index finger is a ring. All the jewelry was confiscated.
Polish fonts were used in the credits sequence
The film, as shown in most countries, had the song "Yerushalayim shel Zahav" - Jerusalem of Gold - at the end. When the film was shown in Israel, audiences laughed at this, as this song was written after the 1967 war as a pop song! They then re-dubbed a song "Eli Eli" which was written by Hannah Sennesh during WWII over the end which was more appropriate.
