Schindler's List Quotes
Amon Goeth : Today is history. Today will be remembered. Years from now the young will ask with wonder about this day. Today is history and you are part of it. Six hundred years ago when elsewhere they were footing the blame for the Black Death, Casimir the Great - so called - told the Jews they could come to Krakow. They came. They trundled their belongings into the city. They settled. They took hold. They prospered in business, science, education, the arts. With nothing they came and with nothing they flourished. For six centuries there has been a Jewish Krakow. By this evening those six centuries will be a rumor. They never happened. Today is history.
Reiter : I'm a graduate of Civil Engineering from the University of Milan.
Amon Goeth : Ah, an educated Jew... like Karl Marx himself. Unterscharfuehrer!
Hujar : Jawohl?
Amon Goeth : Shoot her.
Reiter : Herr Kommandant! I'm only trying to do my job!
Amon Goeth : Ja, I'm doing mine.
Oskar Schindler : Look, All you have to do is tell me what it's worth to you. What's a person worth to you?
Amon Goeth : No, no, no, No. What's one worth to you!
Amon Goeth : I would like so much to reach out to you and touch you in your loneliness. What would it be like, I wonder? What would be wrong with that? I realize that you are not a person in the strictest sense of the word, but, um, maybe you're right about that too. Maybe what's wrong, it's not us, it's this... I mean, when they compare you to vermin, to rodents and to lice. I just, uh, you make a good point. You make a very good point. Is this the face of a rat? Are these the eyes of a rat? "Hath not a Jew eyes?" I feel for you Helen. [ leaning forward to kiss her ]
Amon Goeth : No, I don't think so. You Jewish bitch, you nearly talked me into it, didn't you?
Amon Goeth : They cast a spell on you, you know, the Jews. When you work closely with them, like I do, you see this. They have this power. It's like a virus. Some of my men are infected with this virus. They should be pitied, not punished. They should receive treatment because this is as real as typhus. I see it all the time. It's a matter of money? Hmm?
Amon Goeth : The truth, Helen, is always the right answer.
Itzhak Stern : How many cigarettes have you smoked tonight?
Oskar Schindler : Too many.
Itzhak Stern : For every one you smoke, I smoke half.
Amon Goeth : This is very cruel, Oskar. You're giving them hope. You shouldn't do that. *That's* cruel!
Itzhak Stern : This list... is an absolute good. The list is life. All around its margins lies the gulf.
