Whoever saves one life, saves the world

LEVARTOV We’ve written a letter trying to explain things. In case you’re captured.

SCHINDLER Thank you.
(Stern steps forward and places a ring in Schindler’s hand. It’s a gold band, like a wedding ring. Schindler notices an inscription inside it.)

STERN It’s Hebrew. It says, ‘Whoever saves one life, saves the world.’

SCHINDLER (to himself) I could’ve got more out …

SCHINDLER (to himself) I could’ve got more … if I’d just … I don’t know, if I’d just … I could’ve got more…

STERN Oskar, there are twelve hundred people who are alive because of you. Look at them.

SCHINDLER If I’d made more money …I threw away so much money, you have no idea. If I’d just …

STERN There will be generations because of what you did.

SCHINDLER I didn’t do enough.

STERN You did so much.

SCHINDLER This car. Goeth would’ve bought this car. Why did I keep the car? Ten people, right there, ten more I could’ve got. (looking around) This pin -
(He rips the elaborate Hakenkreus, the swastika, from his lapel and holds it out to Stern pathetically.)

SCHINDLER Two people. This is gold. Two more people. He would’ve given me two for it. At least one. He would’ve given me one. One more. One more person. A person, Stern. For this. One more. I could’ve gotten one more person I didn’t.

SCHINDLER They killed so many people … (Stern, weeping too, embraces him) They killed so many people …
