You are on your way to Brunnlitz in the Czechoslovakia where you will be safe.
Stern, if this factory actually produces a shell that can be fired, I will be very unhappy.
Once Goeth agreed to sell Schindler his Jewish workers, Oskar Schindler and Itzhak Stern began creating a list of names. The more names they could add to the list, men, women, and children, the more lives they would save. Schindler's list was life.
The unconditional surrender of Germany has just been announced. At midnight tonight, the war, is over.
Men and women were loaded onto separate trains headed to Brunnlitz where Schindler's new factory was located. However, due to miscommunication, the women's train was routed to Auschwitz. Upon hearing the news, Oskar Schindler bribed Nazi officers to reroute the train of women workers to his new factory. 1,200 Jewish workers were headed toward safety.

There are eleven hundred people alive because of you...look at them.
Schindler Munitions Factory was created to manufacture weapons such as missile shells that would be used by the Nazis against the Allied forces. Knowing this would further the Nazi goal to rid Europe of Jews, Oskar Schindler recalibrated the machines to create a faulty product. To prevent the factory from being shut down, Schindler continued to bribe Nazi officials.

YOU HAVE BEEN LIBERATED!
By May 1945, World War II was coming to an end. Oskar Schindler spent his entire fortune on bribes and black market supplies to take care of his Jewish workers. However, as a war profiteer, someone who profited from war, Schindler was now a criminal. His plan was to remain at the factory until Germany's official surrender to protect his workers.
Knowing all Schindler had done for them, his workers came together to show their appreciation. 1,200 people who were left with nothing but their lives presented Schindler with a single gold ring with the inscription, "Whoever saves one life saves the world entire." Shortly after midnight, Schindler and his wife fled to avoid being captured and tried for war crimes.
Shortly after the surrender, Jewish workers were liberated. However, although free, anti-Jewish sentiment still ran rampant throughout Europe. It would not be easy for the 1,200 Schindler Jews to begin to rebuild their lives. Due to their perseverance, today, there are an estimated 8,500 descendants of the Schindler Jews living around the world.
