Who gave the Schindlerjuden their name?

Did they refer to themselves as Schindlerjuden first, or was it a moniker originally used by someone else to refer to them? If it was the former, I guess I have no quibble. If it was the latter...

  • Not really sure how the name officially got started, but may I ask why you would be offended if someone else had given them the name?

  • Sounds like you want someone to do your homework for you. Especially since you've gone Anon.

  • Because they're not Jews who "belonged" to Schindler, which is what the name implies, IMO.

  • I see it as more of a term of endearment. They have that special connection to him. It doesn't mean that they belong to him.

  • As you can see, I didn't get a very clear answer on YA, so I changed the wording a little and posted it here. No homework. School was decades ago, LOL.

  • Yeah JeremysMom, I guess I can see where it would be used that way. But it bugs me specifically because they were stem as property at the time, you know?
