The Leica Freedom TrainDPMag Published in Blog
We all know the story of Oskar Schindler, made famous in Steven Spielberg's 1993 movie for saving more than 1000 Jewish refugees from the Holocaust by putting them to work in his factories. It turns out that Ernst Leitz, heir to the founder of the Leica camera company, has a similar legacy. He assigned actual Leica employees, as well as their families, friends and mere acquaintances, to work in Leica facilities around the world—farther from the reach of Adolf Hitler. The Leica plan reached its height in 1938 and 1939. Learn more about Leitz's efforts in the short documentary "Leica Freedom Train," which can be seen on Youtube.
