Schindler's List

Other mistake: Schindler is having the glass door of his office lettered. The style and size of how it is done changes when the one armed worker comes to thank Schindler as he eats breakfast.

Factual error: When the camera took a shot on a train coming to a station in Czechoslovakia, you can see electric cables above the train tracks. There was no such thing in Czechoslovakia as electrified trains in the 1940's. The electrification started in the 1950's. (00:01:05)
