Steven Spielberg will use his earnings from the film "Schindler's List" to establish a foundation named for Oskar Schindler, the hero of the movie, and devoted to Jewish causes and issues. He has named Margery Tabankin its executive director.
Tabankin holds the same position at both the Barbra Streisand Foundation and the Hollywood Women's Political Committee, which includes 225 of the film industry's most influential women. She will keep her post at the foundation, but she is relinquishing the one on the committee.Tabankin said it was impossible to estimate what Spielberg's earnings from the film will be. Schindler was credited with saving 1,000 Jews from German death camps.
