To Poldek Pfefferberg, in response to the question of why he risked so much, as quoted in "Schindler : Why did he do it?" (2010) by Louis Bülow
I knew the people who worked for me. When you know people, you have to behave towards them like human beings.Oskar Schindler
What is there to say? They are my friends. I would do it again, over and over — for I hate cruelty and intolerance.Oskar Schindler
Beyond this day, no thinking person could fail to see what would happen. I was now resolved to do everything in my power to defeat the system.Oskar Schindler
Now you are finally with me, you are safe now. Don't be afraid of anything. You don't have to worry anymore.Oskar Schindler
