Spielberg was even given permission to film within the concentration camps, however did not do it in respect for the victims. The movie ended up winning an Oscar, and led him to become one of the founders of DreamWorks.


“I think we need to take responsibility for the things we put on this planet, and also take responsibility for the things we take off the planet. We need to have limiters on how far we allow ourselves to go – ethical, moral limiters.”
