Schindler’s List is based on the book written by Thomas Keneally which has been categorized as fiction; from this book a screen play was written by Steven Zaillian and attempts to say it was written based on accurate information. Based on this information the movie was marketed as based on a true story. Most of the characters names and city names were correct in the movie even the name of the factory and camps were correct. But the majority of the rest of the movie was created or misrepresented for entertainment purposes.
