Schindler’s List (1993)
Never again. The film powerfully delivered that message, about the way that intolerance and prejudice led to the Holocaust. But it didn’t just make people think and commit themselves to living righteously.
The Righteous Persons Foundation was established using the profits from Schindler’s List theatrical release and director Steven Spielberg’s personal earnings. Dedicated to preserving Jewish history and communities, the film raised over $100 million for the foundation.
The Righteous Persons Foundation continues to fund numerous services for Jewish youth and community such as foster care, meal services, and arts programs.
