When did Oskar Schindler save the Jews?

Oscar Schindler saved the Jews because he saw what happened to the Jews with his very own eyes one day. As a a German he knew he could get in trouble for keeping Jews, but he found an excuse. Many of his workers were Jews, so when Nazis came over to take them away, he refused to let them go and would even fight for them. He also wanted 300 more Jews for his factory since he owned a big one and required a lot of help. By mistake, his workers were sent to the infamous concentration camp Auschwitz-Birkenau and almost killed there. Schindler marched himself over there forcing the Nazis to give his workers back and they did. Many of them were Jewish women and some brought there children along. There were only Jewish men, women and children. He was upset at first about the kids, but he knew he had to save them. His wife did not like Jews, but she took care of them. Schindler ended up saving over one-thousand Jews lives. Before he died, he wanted one thing. To have his body buried in Palestine(now Israel) which is the Jewish state declared in the year 1948. All of his Jewish workers visited his grave and thanked him with small gifts on his grave. He was one of the greatest heroes of the Holocaust.

If there were, it was not very widespread. Anecdotal evidence we have from the "Schindlerjuden," the approximately 1100 Jews saved by Schindler, does not mention them as anything other than Jewish. After what they went through, they may not have been religious, but there is little evidence that they converted to Christianity.
