Oscar Schindler Had His Jews Backs! Outwitted Hitler and Germans by the end of the war he had spent everything he made on keeping 1,300 Jewish men and women alive. He Stood up for Jews when being blamed for a crime they didn ’ t commit: “ an SS man put a potato in his mouth. He had to stand outside like that in the cold weather, and it was written on him 'I'm a potato thief.' When Schindler saw it, he took the potato out of his mouth, and said to the guy, 'go back to your work.' And he told the SS man: In my camp you don't do those things." Schindler remained true to the “ Schindlerjuden, ” the workers he referred to as “ my children. ” eternity.xhost.ro/hitler.jpg
What Schindlers Jews Dealt With Poland had been a relative haven for European Jews— Krakow's Jewish population numbered over 50,000 Jews were herded into crowded ghettos, randomly beaten and humiliated, and killed. Jewish property and businesses were summarily destroyed, or taken over by the SS and 'sold' to Nazi 'investors', one was the fast talking, womanizing, money hungry Oskar Schindler.
Continued.. –In December 1939, as occupied Poland was being torn apart by the savagery of the Holocaust, that's when Schindlers saving the Jews began. Many of the Jews thought Oskar Schindler was a “heavy drinking womanizing German” - then the Jews saw that Oskar is what stood them between life and death.
The Enameled- Goods Factory Schindler was making money, everyone in his factory was fed, no-one was beaten, and no- one was killed Oskar kept the Jews that worked for him in his factory to sleep in his Barracks, for safety
Aftermath: Why did Okar Want To Even Help The Jews? * Oskar was asked questions of why he helped the Jews when he had everything he needed? - 'I was a Nazi, and I believed that the Germans were doing wrong... when they started killing innocent people - and it didn't mean anything to me that they were Jewish, to me they were just human beings, - I decided I'm going to work against them and I'm going to save as many as I can.' -"The persecution of Jews in occupied Poland meant that we could see horror emerging gradually in many ways. In 1939, they were forced to wear Jewish stars, and people were herded and shut up into ghettos. Then, in the years '41 and '42 there was plenty of public evidence of pure sadism. With people behaving like pigs, I felt the Jews were being destroyed. I had to help them. There was no choice."
Oskar Schindler died A hero to the Holocaust victims he saved! DEATH OF A HERO
