Based on the novel, Schindler's Ark, Nazi war-profiteer Oskar Schindler founds an enamelware factory with Polish slave labor during the Holocaust. After witnessing the horrors of Nazi oppression, he conspires to shelter over 1100 workers from deportment to Auschwitz concentration camp.
The film was nominated for 12 academy awards and won 7.
Spielberg directed Schindler's List just days after wrapping up "Jurassic Park." He reported assisted in post-production via satellite. Originally, Spielberg planned to direct Schindler's List prior to "Jurassic Park," but reversed the order as to cater to Universal Pictures.
In the creation of the film, Spielberg decided to shoot in black and white, and avoid steady cams and crane shots so as to not "beautify" the holocaust. The single bit of color in the film, the girl in the red coat, was added as to emphasize the beauty destroyed by the Holocaust.
Some Jewish groups were upset that the biggest film ever made about the Holocaust used a Nazi as the main character and protagonist.
