Oskar Schindler was a German industrialist. He is best remembered for helping more than a thousand Jews during the ‘Holocaust.’ A member of ‘Nazi Party,’ Oskar employed a large number of Jews in his factories of enamelware and ammunitions. He even bribed Nazi officials to keep his workers safe. By the end of ‘World War II,’ he spent all his fortune in bribing officials, and declared bankruptcy in 1958. His new ventures failed and he survived on financial support from ‘Schindler’s Jews.’ He was named ‘Righteous Among the Nations’ by the Israeli government in 1993.
