Spruchkammermeldebogen von Oskar Schindler (1908-1974)

Staatsarchiv Amberg


During WWII, Oskar Schindler (1908-1974), together with his wife Emilie (1907-2001), saved over 1,200 Jews from death in the NS concentration camps. As owners of a war-relevant enamelware factory near Cracow (Kraków, Poland), which had been transferred in 1944 to Brünnlitz (Brněnec, Czech Republic), they managed under the most considerable personal risks to employ Jewish people under relatively good working conditions and to save them from the threat of deportation. After the end of the war, Oskar Schindler lived from 1945 to 1950 in Ratisbon, where the denazification procedure was ceased against him as a person “not concerned by the law” on 31 October 1947. Schindler gained worldwide renown through the film Schindler’s List by the US-American director Steven Spielberg in 1993.
