Back Schindler's List

Movie Synopsis

This Academy Award winning film graphically depicts life in German-occupied Poland during WWII. Oskar Schindler came to Poland from Germany with the hopes of striking it rich. What begins as the cynical exploitation of concentration camp workers in his factory, becomes a quest to save the Jews from the horrors of Nazi occupation.

Movie Sermon's General Warning

WARNING: Schindler's List is one of the most acclaimed films ever produced. Nevertheless, discretion is needed as it contains profanity, nudity (sexual and non-sexual) and a brief sex scene. Adults only, and, even then, discretion is urged.
