Schindler factory to become a Holocaust memorial
Oskar Schindler saved 1,200 Jews from deportation to a concentration camp by hiring them to work in his factory during World War II. Now that building is to become a memorial site. Oskar Schindler's former factory in the Czech Republic will be declared a listed monument, the Oskar-Schindler Foundation said on Thursday. The foundation took over the management of the dilapidated building in the village of Brnenec in August. It plans to restore it and turn it into a Holocaust memorial by 2019.
