Steven Spielberg

Wins Oscar

21 Mar, 1994

Spielberg wins the Academy Award for Best Directing in the World War II biographical drama¬†Schindler’s List. Clint Eastwood presents the award.

Let me just start by saying that this never could have happened, this never could have gotten started without a survivor named Poldek Pfefferberg who Oskar Schindler saved from Auschwitz, from Belsen. He’s the man who talked Thomas Keneally into writing the book. I owe him such a debt. All of us owe him such a debt. He has carried the story of Oskar Schindler to all of us. A man of complete obscurity who makes us wish and hope for Oskar Schindlers in all of our lives.
