Could somebody tell me why this story is a lie?
Oskar Schindler was born in 1908 in the small industrial town of Zwittau, in the Sudeten region, which was then part of the Austrian empire. His father owned a farm machinery plant and Oskar was trained to be an engineer. Although raised as a Catholic, Oskar was not religious and often played as a child with his Jewish neighbors.
A racing enthusiast, Oskar built and raced his own motorcycle. At the age of 20, he married Emilie, the quiet daughter of a gentleman farmer. Soon after their marriage, he was called into military service. Upon his release, he returned home and began working for his father. But their factory fell victim to the depression of the 1930s and Oskar moved into a job as a sales manager for an electrical company. He enjoyed his new career, in particular the traveling and meeting new people — especially women. To help him secure orders, he joined the local Nazi party.
In 1939, when Germany overran Poland, Oskar set out for Krakow to find his fortune in the profitable business of war. Through local Nazi connections, he took charge of a confiscated enamelware factory that made mess kits and field kitchenware for the German army.
Oskar settled comfortably into life in Krakow. While his wife remained in Moravia, a series of mistresses kept him company.
He prospered in Krakow, making the most of his friendships with district heads of various Nazi security forces and Amon Goeth, commandant of Plaszow, the forced labor camp nearby. The contracts he obtained through Nazi connections brought him huge profits. Oskar quickly learned how to work inside the corrupt and savage system the Nazis operated and knew how to manipulate it to his own good fortune.
His accountant Itzhak Stern encouraged him to employ Jewish workers; his personnel grew from 45 workers to more than 250 as army contracts poured in.
His affinity for the Nazi party waned as he continued to witness the sporadic raids and killings to which the Jews of Krakow were subject. Most brutal was the Nazis’ liquidation of the Krakow Jewish quarter, where Schindler saw soldiers drag families from their apartments and shoot anyone who resisted on sight. The Nazis excluded no one — including a little Jewish girl in a scarlet coat — from witnessing these sidewalk executions. Watching these killings, Schindler realized that if they were content to commit their crimes in full view of children, they must have planned to murder the witnesses as well.
Schindler then worked with Stern to protect as many Jews as possible. The workforce at Emalia, as he called his factory, burgeoned triplefold; whenever a worker at Plaszow was put in direct peril, Schindler traded a blackmarket item for that worker’s transfer to his factory.
When the Nazis’ "Final Solution" threatened Emalia itself, Schindler set up his factory in Brinnlitz, a small town on the Polish-Czechoslovakian border. He was allowed to draw up a list of "essential" Jewish workers — those from Emalia and others with special talents he deemed useful — whom he could take with him. When word spread that there was a list, everyone prayed to be on it. With the help of Itzhak Stern, he drafted a register of more than 1,100 names. Schindler and these workers waited out the war in relative safety.
Schindler lost everything he possessed at the end of the war. He was penniless. Never again did he prosper.
After the war, he and his wife emigrated to Argentina, where he took up farming. After 10 unsuccessful years, he abandoned Emilie and returned to Germany. For the remainder of his life, his "family," the Schindlerjuden, cared for him.
Is this another 1100 coconspirators and liars?
