The Jewish Counsel, is consisting out of 24 pointed/selected Jews, was in charge to carry out instructions from the regime of Krakau, like making lists for workcrews, food and house- accommodation and as a complaint-bureau.

The last thing was very smart of the Germans because so they didn’t have to deal with the complaints of the Jews and the counsel coulden’t do anything because the Germans didn’t care and changed the rules every day.

Schindler is going to hire Itzhak Stern as a accountant for to run his factory for him and use him to get in touch with rich Jews to make a deal with them. He borows money from them in exchange for pots an pans because according to Schindler the money was no good in the ghetto and Jews coulden’t run a company so the jews agree, with Schindler and give him the money.

20 March 1941 at the latest, every Jew had to be in a ghetto.

Edict 44/91 raised a surrounded jewish district South of the Weichel. It was obliged to live in the ghetto. All the Jews from Krakau an surroundings are being packed-up in a 400 by 600 m area.

Jews are being kicked out of there house and are being moved on foot to a place to get checked, if there qualified to work if you are you get a blauschein, when youre not you get transported to one of the camps.

People who were not qualified like teacher, musician, etc. etc. where put on the list and then they would be transported.

Schindler has to pay the SS, 7 Deutsch Mark for one Jew and 5 Mark for a woman, this money has to be payed to the Bureau of the Reich. The Jews don’t get payed, but the Polish people are getting payed so the cost a bit more. So for economic reasons Schindler takes the Jews so Stern is seeing this as exploitation of his people so he doesn’t like Schindler very much.

People are being intstructated how the must work and Schindler has to pich a secretary but he can’t choose so he take’s them all.

His wife come’s nocking on the door but a other lady opens the door, so she is a little bit pissed. Later she leaves because Schindler doesen’t want her around.

Stern is picked up because he forgot to bring his blauschein with him, Polek warns Schindler, he gets there at the nich of time and get Stern out by treathning that the soldier will be in Russia at the and of the month.

The belongings of the other Jews is being tricked of them because the tell them the get it back. So there is a pile of clothes, suitcase, shoese, jewels,etc. etc. that is being select by other Jews.
