Full Answer

Oskar Schindler was born on April 28, 1908 in Moravia. In 1939 he moved to Karakow and bought a Jewish-owned factory. This factory, Emalia, employed over 1,000 Jewish workers, who Schindler was able to claim as essential workers due to the addition of an armaments manufacturing division. In 1944, he relocated his plant, and the list of Jewish workers he needed for the factory was known as “Schindler's List." In doing so he was able to spare the lives of his workers. The 1983 book and 1993 film, both titled “Schindler's List," tell his story.
