Schindler’s List Available On Blu-ray™ for the First Time Ever

Schindler’s List marks its 20th anniversary with a Limited Edition Blu-rayCombo Pack – featuring DVD, Digital Copy & UltraViolet– on March 5, 2013 when it will be released to the public. Schindler’s List 20th Anniversary Limited Edition has been restored from the original film negative.  The movie is of course about the heroic tale of Oskar Schindler , a member of the Nazi party who risked his own life to save more than 1,100 Jews during the Holocaust.

One of the most meaningful films of our generation, Schindler’s List tells an extraordinary true story of courage and faith that continues to inspire. “Schindler’s List is a rare masterpiece of filmmaking that remains as riveting and moving today as it was for moviegoers 20 years ago,” said Craig Kornblau , President of Universal Studios Home Entertainment. “It stands as a powerful reminder of the heroism and humanity of those willing to stand up against intolerance.”

With its initial release in 1993, Schindler’s List rapidly became one of the most honored films of all time, garnering twelve Academy Award® nominations and taking home seven Oscars®, including Best Director and Best Picture for Spielberg.

Many Holocaust movies continue to attract more awareness – the Mark Birnbaum movie Harp Tree is being shown at Jewish film festivals nationwide.

The historic release of Schindler’s List on Blu-ray also marks the beginning of the 20th year of the USC Shoah Foundation – The Institute for Visual History and Education. Inspired by the experience of making Schindler’s List, Steven Spielberg established the organization in 1994 to videotape interviews with survivors and other witnesses of the Holocaust.
