Special Features
The movie is spread across both sides of the DVD, with bonus material also found on Side B. Steven Spielberg introduces the 77-minute "Voices From The List," a documentary that features interviews with Holocaust survivors who tell their incredible stories. There is also an 11-minute "Shoah Foundation Story With Steven Spielberg," in which founding chairman Spielberg explains why he started the visual history organization. This DVD also features one of the best cast and filmmaker biography archives; a supplement that is often very weak with most DVD titles. Finally, there is a biography of Oskar Schindler and, inside the sleeve of the DVD packaging, is a brochure with production notes. Also available in a Collector's Gift Set which adds additional extras.
