Steven Spielberg's movie "Schindlers' List" in 1993 is a historical drama based on the novel "Schindler's Ark." It received a lot of recognition including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay given by Academy Awards, British Academy Film Awards, Chicago Film Critics Association Awards and Golden Globe Awards during its time.

The movie reflects the life and heroic act of Oskar Schindler, a German entrepreneur and a member of the Nazi Party who saved the lives of his 1,200 Jewish employees from the Holocaust. The genocide headed by Adolf Hitler following the outbreak of World War II.

If you're a fan of that film, it's your chance to start saving up and make a tour to Czech Republic.

The Endowment Fund for the Memorial of the Shoah and Oskar Schindler, a charitable organization that promotes Holocaust awareness, is presently engaged in turning the former factory and concentration camp in Brnenec into a museum on 2019. It's the historical place were Schindler housed and saved his Jews employees.

Jaroslav Novak, the founder of the organization, said in his interview, "The goal is to build a true copy of the complex on the original bases of the concentration camp, including watchtowers and the factory area, the hospital and the camp with prisoners."

The idea is to transform the memorial into an educational place where exhibits and conferences can be held. It will also showcase the life of Oscar Schindler, the fate of the saved Jews and the history of Holocaust. They will also feature documentaries, films and books.

The foundation is continuously collecting funds to aid their project. They already secured the support of the local community.

"It is necessary to remind of things that should no longer be repeated," Brnenec Mayor, Blahoslav Kaspar, said in a report by Prague Daily Monitor.

Novak estimated that renovation would cost around $5.5 million.
