SS OFFICER 1

Who is that?

SS OFFICER 2

(like everyone knows)

That's Oskar Schindler. He's an old

friend of... I don't know, somebody's.

GIRL WITH A BIG CAMERA

screws in a flashbulb. She lifts the unwieldy thing to her

face and focuses.

As the bulb flashes, the noise of the club suddenly drops

out, and the moment is caught in BLACK and WHITE: Oskar

Schindler, surrounded by his many new friends, smiling

urbanely.

EXT. SQUARE - CRACOW - DAY

A photograph of a face on a work card, BLACK and WHITE. A

typed name, black and white. A hand affixes a sticker to the

card and it saturates with COLOR, DEEP BLUE.

People in long lines, waiting. Others near idling trucks,

waiting. Others against sides of buildings, waiting. Clerks

with clipboards move through the crowds, calling out names.

CLERKS:

Groder... Gemeinerowa... Libeskind...

INT. APARTMENT BUILDING - CRACOW - DAY

The party pin in his lapel catches the light in the hallway.

SCHINDLER:

Stern?

Behind Schindler, the door to another apartment closes softly.

A radio, somewhere, is suddenly silenced.

SCHINDLER:

Are you Itzhak Stern?

At the door of this apartment, a man with the face and manner

of a Talmudic scholar, finally nods in resignation, like his

number has just come up.
