Watch the first 45 minutes of Schindlers List and see how in wartime luxury items are used to curry favor for Oscar Shcindler with the high command. Cans of coffee, sardines (yuck) , candy, wine and alcohol are given in baskets to those who would best help him secure a government contract to make cookware for the German army. These baskets were big with lots of goodies in them, but then Mr. Schindler had deeper pockets than you and I but the idea has plenty of merit to be used on a smaller scale.

As the years went on the list of Schindlerjuden, or “Schindler Jews” changed from anywhere between 801-1,200 people. Regardless of the number, had it not been for caches that people had and the black market, many of these items would have not been available and Mr. Schindler would have probably lost favor with the High Command.

At the end of Schindlers list as Oscar Schindler prepares to flee he orders Itzhak Stern to give material and a bottle of Vodka to everyone. “ they won’t drink it, they know it’s value” he says. In reality Schindler gave each Jew before he fled a duffel bag with items designed to help them begin their new life- blankets, thread, sewing supplies and bottles of Vodka among other things. The blankets were sewn into clothing and the vodka traded for food

They would trade the very valuable bottle for what they needed, and it would probably be traded again and again for needed items by those who traded for it.

There are more than six thousand descendants of the Schindler jews who could be said in a way, are here due at least partly to luxury items that started Oscar Schindler down the road he took and eventually helped their ancestors in rebuilding their lives.

Your cache might not save 1,200 people but it could very well save you!
