I owe this to my father who believed completely in the thing that destroyed Oskar Schindler as a businessman -- common decency. I want to thank him, the rest of my family, Steven Spielberg. And I'd like to accept this in honor of the twelve hundred survivors of Schindler's factory and their families, and in memory of those whose names are not on Schindler's list. Thank you very, very much.
