STERN:

I am.

Schindler offers a hand. Confused, Stern tentatively reaches

for it, and finds his own grasped firmly.

INT. STERN'S APARTMENT - DAY

Settled into an overstuffed chair in a simple apartment,

Schindler pours a shot of cognac from a flask.

SCHINDLER:

There's a company you did the books

for on Lipowa Street, made what,

pots and pans?

Stern stares at the cognac Schindler's offering him. He

doesn't know who this man is, or what he wants.

STERN:

(pause)

By law, I have to tell you, sir, I'm

a Jew.

Schindler looks puzzled, then shrugs, dismissing it.

SCHINDLER:

All right, you've done it -- good

company, you think?

He keeps holding out the drink. Stern declines it with a

slow shake of his head.

STERN:

It did all right.

Schindler nods, takes out a cigarette case.

SCHINDLER:

I don't know anything about

enamelware, do you?

He offers Stern a cigarette. Stern declines again.

STERN:

I was just the accountant.
