‘Schindler’s List’ Makes DVD Debut
BURBANK, Calif. – Director and filmmaker Steven Spielberg got reacquainted Wednesday with some of the Jews whose survival he depicted in the Oscar-winning “Schindler’s List.”
To mark the film’s DVD release next Tuesday, Spielberg and cast members including Ben Kingsley and Ralph Fiennes toured the Survivors of the Shoah Visual History Foundation, the Holocaust-education facility Spielberg created after completing “Schindler’s List.”
Accompanying them were five Holocaust survivors who were among 1,100 Jews saved by German industrialist Oskar Schindler, played by Liam Neeson in the 1993 film, which won seven Academy Awards, including best picture and director.
The foundation is celebrating its 10th anniversary.
“Steven Spielberg, in my opinion, revived the history of the Holocaust, which was practically forgotten by that time,” said Lewis Fagen, 80, of Boca Raton, Fla., who was a teenager when Schindler put him and his parents to work in his factory, saving them from the Nazi genocide.
For all the acclaim the film received, “Schindler’s List” was just a “prelude to what has become the most important work of my life aside from my family,” Spielberg said of the foundation.
The foundation plans to make some 120,000 hours of videotaped interviews available for viewing at universities and other research centers around the world.
“These survivors, once thought to be victims, have become educators,” Spielberg said.
