4. Oskar Schindler: They won’t soon forget the name “Oskar Schindler” around here. “Oskar Schindler,” they’ll say, “everybody remembers him. He did something extraordinary. He did what no one else did. He came with nothing, a suitcase, and built a bankrupt company into a major manufactory. And left with a steamer trunk, two steamer trunks, of money. All the riches of the world.”

He did make the difference and wrote his name in history forever. Oskar Schindler will be remembered for many reasons.
