Schindler's List Schindler's List is one of the most powerful movies of all time. It presents the indelible true story of enigmatic German businessman Oskar Schindler who becomes an unlikely saviour of more than 1100 Jews amid the barbaric Nazi reign. A German Catholic war profiteer, Schindler moved to Krakow in 1939 when Germany overran Poland. There he opens an enamelware factory that, on the advice of his Jewish accountant Itzhak Stern, was staffed by Jews from the nearby forced labour camp at Plaszow. Schindler's factory prospered though his contacts with the Nazi war machine and its local representatives, as well as his deft skill on the black market.

Six million Jewish residents of Eastern Europe were exterminated during the Holocaust of the 1940’s. Families were taken out of their homes and put into ghettos, which were large prison type establishments that housed dozens of people in one small apartment.

In 1993, Steven Spielberg directed a film, Schindler’s List, which depicted the life of one man who risked his life and money to save the few Jewish families he could.
The story is a documentary but in a cartoon, comic type of way and is like an adventure that makes you just reflect about your life and back then. LIfe was a struggle to survive during the war if you were a Jew for they would hunt you down. Also it just reflects on feeling of how you would feel if you lost your family and all you had, even if you were rich and wealthy you would be treated like less than a human. The book leaves you thinking on many concepts and it's true how could a human be treated as less just because of your religion.

Oskar Schindler was a true hero during World War II. He risked life and limb for people he did not even meet before. He saved his accountant Itzhak Stern from death and Itzhak helped change his views and help save the Jews. Oskar Schindler saved over a thousand Jews from subsequently being sent to the gas chambers and he gave them food and work. Not a single S.S. officer got suspicious because they knew that the Jews would be working for a German cause, but on the contrary, they did not know that they were being treated affectionately and compassionately. Overall we believe that Oskar Schindler was a source of optimism and expectancy for the Jewish people. Oskar Schindler was the Moses of
The importance of this film is that it puts the issue of racism and oppression in your face in such a way that it forces you to take an honest look, not just at the systematic oppression and racism experienced by African Americans, but also at how black lives in America are still undervalued as a result. In addition to this we are made aware even moreso that not much has changed for blacks in the sense
The last thing that really appeals to me that connects to the theme is the whole holocaust and the prisoners and how they actually get explained in this story a little but because this is not all about the holocaust but it is but what really appealed to me is how they explained how they helped each other but not for worthy cause for their end so they could pass on and be in a probable better life. The Jewish arrivals
Overall, the film did exactly what any good dramatic film would do and that is make the audience feel something. The tragedy of the Holocaust has never been fictionally depicted from a German child’s view until this movie.

There were several aspects of the film which I believe the director I think this was important when showing how people during the Holocaust were. They may have different reasoning as to why they took on certain roles or conducted themselves in such ways, but it showed that not everyone shared and supported the ideology behind Adolf Hitler. I think it was important to see that Lutz Heck remembered who he was before putting on the Nazi uniform.
