Oskar Schindler

I was now resolved to do everything in my power to defeat the system.

Oskar Schindler

Oskar Schindler is a compassionate leader who always wins. It would rather be difficult to get through the dirty game of politics but for as long as your heart is in the right place and you know why you do the things you do and know who you do it for, the ordeal and sacrifices are definitely worth it.

Schindler with Jews Saved

In a symbolic reversal of his earlier purpose in life, he spends all the money he made by exploiting the labour of Jews in buying the lives of Jews; whatever is not spent in bribing Goeth and other Nazi officials is subsequently spent in feeding and protecting his Jews. (Photo by:

When he saw the injustices and sufferings the Jews had to endure during the holocaust, he knew he had no other choice but to help. He couldn’t go against the system just like that as he had to work around it. He had to carefully craft his plan and his love for the people propelled him to press on.

Schindler Jews Descendants
Today there are 7,000 descendants of Schindler’s Jews living in US and Europe, and many in Israel. Before the Second World War, the Jewish population of Poland was 3.5 million. Today there are between 3,000 and 4,000 left. (Photo by:

He saved over a thousand Jews from the torment and death. He lost his wealth for bribing authorities just so he kept them alive. If one’s motivation transcends beyond wealth or money, the fulfillment is beyond measure.

One Jew said during the selection,

We should not be here, we are Schindler’s Jews.
