In 1993 on the big screens there was a film of Steven Spielberg’s “Schindler’s List”. It was a drama about a German businessman and Nazi party member, Oskar Schindler, who during the war managed to save over a thousand Polish Jews.

The basis for the script of the film was the book writer Thomas Keneally “Schindler’s Ark”. Not familiar with the work of this author people believed that “Schindler’s List” — a story about how he tried to survive during the Holocaust. But in fact shown in film history was the place to be in real life.
