Corrected entry: The girl in the red clothing, seen by Schindler as she tried to escape the ghetto, later reappears dead, exhumed and burned at the Plaszow camp, still in her red clothes. All Jews were told to disrobe completely before they were gassed at the camps, and their clothes were sent to Germany as part of the "Spinnstoffsammlung" action - collecting of clothes, boots etc. for the purpose of German soldiers and their families. It is very unlikely that the Germans made an exception and left one girl dressed.
Corrected entry: During the scene when the guards storm the house to find the hidden Jews in the ghetto, the piece that the guard is playing on the piano is the Prelude from Bach's English Suite in A minor. Which means the guard who guessed "Bach" first was right - it's not Mozart.
Corrected entry: Just after the conversation between Schindler and Goeth about to wager Helen Hirsch in a card game, the family Dresner is shown saying their names to get in the "schindlerjuden" list, but the name of Danka Dresner is never mentioned. Instead, she is called Donata by her mother.
Corrected entry: When Schindler rescues a group of children from being taken away for gassing, he argues with one of the soldiers that the small hands of children are necessary to polish the inside of .45 cartridge cases. The WW2 Germans used neither this caliber nor the inch-based designation; they used millimeters (7.92mm Mauser, 9mm Parabellum etc) for labelling cartridge sizes.
Corrected entry: When the train is taking Schindler's workers to Czeckoslovakia toward the end, they take an icicle from out the tiny window and melt it for water. When they next cut to a shot of the train trolling by, it's rather odd that the ONLY patch of ice on all the cars rolling by just happens to be over that one window.
Corrected entry: Once his first factory is completed, Schindler sends some bribes to Nazi officials to get the permits. When the camera shows the officials enjoying their gifts, in the background we hear the voice of Schindler talking about his factory. He calls his factory "Deutsche Emailfabrik", when its real name is "Deutsche EmailWARENfabrik", as you can see in the front of the building.
Corrected entry: When Ben Kingsley is mistakenly forced onto a train and Liam Neeson arrives at the last minute to retrieve him, a clerk tells the conductor to stop the train. When the clerk walks back to Neeson with his clipboard, he walks from the direction of the back of the train, the end that would enter the station upon arrival. The train is leaving however, which means he should run up from the other side.
Corrected entry: When Goeth smacks Helen Hirsch, you can see the actress reacting before the actual hit.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the train load of Jewish women are transported to a concentration camp instead of Schindler's hometown due to a paperwork error, the subtitles read "Auschwitz" as the train pulls under the concentration camp gate. This camp was not Auschwitz, it is Berkenau Camp which was located 2km west of Auschwitz Camp.
Corrected entry: In the scene when Schindler takes off his gold party badge and mentions that the gold in this badge could have saved many more people is wrong. The Nazi Gold Party Badge is only gold in colour and not content. Also the badge shown was the 'large' military version and not the civilian type that Herr Schindler would have had.
Corrected entry: In the internment camp scene, many Jews are stripped naked. However, many of the men are not circumcised.
Corrected entry: When the Commander in the camp wants to shoot the rabbi in the yard outside the factory, he several times pulls back the slide. Wouldn't this make one bullet come out of the gun every time he did?
