* Some BlackComedy occurs when Göth tries executing one of Schindler's workers... only for his Luger to jam on him.[[note]]This is [[TruthInTelevision realistic]], as all Luger pistols needed perfectly clean ammo and immaculately clean and freshly greased mechanical parts to fire. Goeth is a bit of a slacker when it comes to carrying for his own gun[[/note]] He produces a Browning pistol instead... and it too jams on him. After several fruitless attempts to shoot the guy, he just {{Pistol Whip}}s him and leaves.

** What makes this scene ''hilarious'' is that the whole time, [[FunnyBackgroundEvent in the background]], a succession of young Jewish guys are running back and forth across the screen, returning with stolen furniture, and then returning for ''another'' trip around....while the poor Jewish rabbi and the SS men are completely oblivious.

** By this point in the war, the real Schindler had made up his mind to hinder the German military as much as possible. His factory produced almost no usable munitions of its own, and he bought shells from other companies and resold them as his own to keep the army happy. There were rumors that he even mis-calibrated the machines so that they would produce nothing but junk.
