Deliberate mistake: The movie shows events between 1939 and 1945 but the children look the same at the beginning and the end, they don't grow up. Pay attention to Danka Dresner, Adam Levy and Olek Rosner.
Continuity mistake: Amon Goeth pulls out a German Luger to shoot the rabbi. The Luger jams so Goeth pulls out another pistol and pulls the slide back indicating a semi-auto handgun. The second also fails. Goeth gets frustrated and throws the gun on the ground. When the other Nazi picks it up, it's magically a revolver. (01:28:05)
Trivia: The scene with the hinge-maker almost getting shot has a hidden meaning, when several guns that are used misfire. The Nazis used forced labor to produce their wargoods, including officers' pistols. The prisoners manufacturing the guns were known to file down the hammer on the pistols so that they would not fire properly, in an effort to thwart the Nazi regime.
Question: Are the real Schindler Jews in the end accompanied by younger relatives or by the people who played them in the movie?
