Oskar Schindler and 1,200 people...

Did you read Life with Lynnie (LwL), yesterday?

If you didn't, I would suggest you read it now.

Hopefully, you did read about Carl Lutz... and... the International Holocaust Remembrance Day!

You would have noticed that I never heard about it until recently.  However, I was glad that I had found about it!

As I mentioned yesterday, when I traveled in Europe, I did see some concentration camps.  I will tell you about them, later.

Why?

When I drove into Krakow, Poland... I had gone there to see a museum that is entitled, the Oskar Schindler's Enamel Factory.

Here is a link by muzeumkrakowa.pl that is for you to see the Schindler's museum:  https://www.muzeumkrakowa.pl/branches/oskar-schindlers-factory.

If you clicked on that link, you would have seen that it stated (I typed to share it, because I couldn't copy it):  Exhibition Krakow under Nazi Occupation 1939-1945 is located in the former administrative building of Oscar Schindler's Enamel Factory at 4 Lipowa Street.

Why did I want to see it?

Oskar Schindler was someone very important.  Here is a link by Wikipedia that is entitled, Oskar Schindlerhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oskar_Schindler.

Hopefully, you clicked on the link and read that article.  However, I will share a bit (I copied/pasted):

Oskar Schindler (28 April 1908 – 9 October 1974) was a German industrialist and a member of the Nazi Party who is credited with saving the lives of 1,200 Jews during the Holocaust by employing them in his enamelware and ammunitions factories in occupied Poland and the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia. He is the subject of the 1982 novel Schindler's Ark and its 1993 film adaptation, Schindler's List, which reflected his life as an opportunist initially motivated by profit, who came to show extraordinary initiative, tenacity, courage, and dedication to save the lives of his Jewish employees.

To me, it was truly wonderful going there and seeing all the information about what Oskar Schindler did during WW2!

It was truly a blessing that he saved the lives of 1,200 Jewish people!

I wondered if Oskar Schindler was Christian.

On the internet, I found an article by jpost.com that is entitled, Schindler was just one of many church, Official says:  https://www.jpost.com/Diaspora/Schindler-was-just-one-of-many-church-official-says-539898.

Hopefully, he was Christian, since he went to various churches... and saved the lives of 1,200 Jewish people... as I previously mentioned.

I couldn't copy what was stated on that article by Jerusalem Post, but I will write was mentioned at first:

Oskar Schindler may be one of the most famous Christians who saved Jews during the Holocaust, a church official said, but he is just one of many and all of them should be remembered.

I truly thought it was wonderful, what Oskar Schindler did.

After all, he literally helped those people live, here on earth.  For if the Jewish people hadn't worked for him, their lives would probably have ended, during WW2.

Thinking about that, made me think about Psalm 82:4:  "Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked.".

Amen!  Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked.

As we just read, some of the Jewish people were poor and needy, because of the wickedness that Nazi did at that time... since Jewish and other people were hurt and many died.

Again, I will say that I was happy to have gone there, and saw so much!

I do hope that if you are able to travel to Krakow, Poland, that you will go to see the Schindler's museum.

If you do, I believe you will thank God!


Until next time...
