The German forces defeat the Polish in weeks. Soon, the Jews are forced out of their homes to report to the train station, where their names are registered. In there appear a subtitle that say ”Over 10,000 Jews were being shipped to Krakow” or something like that. In Krakow the ghetto is overcrowded with Jews. The Jewish people are organized into working groups by the Jewish council, comprised of some elected Jews responsible for the order. Oskar Schindler , a German businessman, who wishes to see a Jew that owns a pot-making factory visits the ghetto, because Jews are no longer allowed to own businesses, so Oskar makes a deal with Stern, and plans to take over the factory after trading money and appointing him his factory manager.

Jews are now forced to pack their belongings and move out of their homes by German soldiers. When the Jews arrive to the ghetto, they receive housing assignments and are forced to be in tight living quarters. The next morning, the people are gathered outside and Jews reported information on their education and working experiences. Some of the Jews that can’t be used for work are loaded onto trucks and sent off to horrible camps for a “Special Treat”. Some of the Jews that are able to work will soon report to Oskar Schindler’s factory.

Schindler, in the beginning of the movie, not actually aware of the full extent of the killing Jews. At his own expense, he constructs a camp.

Jews are randomly pulled from their houses and killed. The soldiers violently raid the Jews' homes and steal their belongings. Many of the residents of the ghetto are killed. Only a few live and some of them are taken to Plaszow forced labor camp. Shindler's realizations of the horrors of the holocaust begin in this part, Schindler, on top of a barren hill, traces the path of a young and helpless Jewish girl who wanders through the streets of a devastated camp. In a red coat, desperately searching a palce to hide, the little girl finally wanders into an abandoned building where she is safe from the Germany soldiers. After the day of killing, Oskar reports to the camp. Oskar is very upset; he has no workers anymore because they were all captured and taken off to the camp. He is allowed to take back most of his workers to the factory. Once everybody returns to work, a young lady that wishes
