During the Holocaust, millions of Jews died in Nazi death camps like Auschwitz, but Oskar Schindler's Jews miraculously survived. To more than 1200 Jews Oskar Schindler was all that stood between them and death at the hands of the SS. But he remained true to his Jews, the workers he referred to as my children. In the shadow of Auschwitz he kept the Nazis out and everyone alive. Oskar Schindler spent millions to protect his Schindler Jews, everything he possessed - he died penniless. But he earned the everlasting gratitude of his "children". Today his name is known as a household word for courage - a hero who saved 1200 Jews from Hitler's gas chambers.

Oskar Schindler died in Hildesheim in Germany October 9, 1974 and he wanted to be buried in Israel in Jerusalem. As he said: My children are here .. Today there are more than 7,000 descendants of Schindler's Jews living in US, Europe and Israel. Before World War 2, the Jewish population of Poland was 3.5 million. Today there are between 3,000 and 4,000 left.
