Why Did Oskar Schindler Save the Jews?

Answer

It's unclear exactly why Oskar Schindler decided to save the Jews as he did. He was a war profiteer and not generally considered to be a clean-living, moral person even in daily life outside of his Nazi involvement. He was involved in bribery and many deceptive practices throughout his career and it seems that when confronted with the Holocaust he made the decision to undercut Nazi efforts by stopping the crimes that he could.
