Further down the movie lane...


Oscar Schindler (OS) leaves Deuische Emailwarenfabrik (DEF) at the end of the World War, giving Yitzak Stern (OS), his plant manager, last minute orders to distribute the clothes to the girls in the factory workers. YS extends a ring to OS.

(Looks at the ring YS gave him)

Yitzak stern: Its Hebrew for "Whoever saves one life saves the world entire".

Looks at his wife and accidentally drops it, but desparately picks it up, indicating how much he values it. OS looks at his factory workers (who are called Schindler Jews) as he wears it securely in his finger. He steps close to Yitzak Stern and shakes his hand firmly.

Oscar Schindler: I could have got more out.

Yitzak Stern shakes his head in disapproval

Yitzak Stern: There are eleven hundred people all alive because of you. Look at them.

Oscar Schindler: If I had made more money. (Chuckles to hide his tears). I threw away so much money. (Edges closer to tears now..) You have no idea. If I just....

(YS interrupts): There will be generations because of what you did.

Oscar Schindler: I didn't do enough!

Yitzak Stern: You did so much!

They look at each other for what seems to be an eternal moment. Then OS turns to his left and looks at his car that is waiting to take him to safety from the Allied Forces.

Oscar Schindler: This car..... (walks towards it)...Kurt would have bought this car. Why did I keep this car. Why did I keep the car. Ten people right there! (Turns and looks at the factory workers, who look on amazed at his response.) Ten people! Ten more peole. (Now completely disappointed at his realisation, reaches out for his Nazi pin on his coat) This pin! Two people. (Looks at around at others, gesturing towards the pin). This is GOLD! Two more people! It would have given me two more. Atleast one! It would have given me one. One more. One more PERSON!
(A realisation sinks in) A person is dead! (He looks at the pin. As though he couldn't stand the sight of the pin, he stumbles and hold on to Yitzak Stern for balance. Now fully embracing him..) I.....could have got.....one more person......(looks at the workers again)....and I didn't....I....didn't!

He couldn't hold his composure any more and bursts into tears as he goes down on his knees still holding Yitzak Stern! Yitzak Stern desperately tries to hold him up but fails. Moved by the Oscar Schindler's emotional outburst, the factory workers gather and kneel around him to console as he continues crying uncontrolably....One of the workers picks up a picks up a factory workers uniform which is going to disguise Oscar's identity and unbuttons it for him. He gets on to the car in the factory worker's clothes and looks out of the window in retrospect of what he could have done, but failed to do. He had saved only eleven hundred while he could have saved one more! The car leaves the factory.

The best scene made in all movies I have seen so far.... From Schindler's List!

Tell all ur friends and colleagues in the US. Awesome prices if ur flying anywhere in the world..and it’s really useful, if ur flying from the US to China, South East Asia and Europe…hope this helps!! The Gold membership is free, and the deals are really good.. They have a platinum membership too, but I think that’s paid.. not really sure, but you get much better deals than the gold membership.

Cheers
