Continuity mistake: When Schindler is leaving the factory, at the end of the movie, he starts to sob "I could have saved more". Two women approach him from the left side and hug him. When the angle changes the women are back behind and repeat the whole movement again.
Everyone gets sent to Schindler's hometown to work at his factory - the women are sent to Auchwitz accidentally but are returned to Schindler eventually. The workers make a gold ring for him engraved with a Hebrew proverb. Schindler breaks down in tears as he and his wife flee the factory. A few days later the Red Army liberates the workers. Goeth is eventually found in Austria and hanged for war crimes. The final scene shows a group of people in the distance walking towards the camera. As they get closer, they each lay a stone on a grave, and we realize these are the *actual* Schindler Jews accompanied by the actors who either portrayed them or their relatives.
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?
