Schindler's List

Schindler's List is is a gritty, raw but very real depiction of the Holocaust & of how one man, Oskar Schindler , a member of the Nazi Party decided to do the right thing & in doing so saved over 1,100 Jews, even though this is a hard movie to watch I think people should know what happened in our history & how even one person can make a differenceif you decide to choose good over evil & follow your heart not the crowd, I think youg adults especially need to see this.

Schindler's List

I doubt I can add anything to the public's praise for both Keneally's book and the movie version of the story. As with all adapted screenplays, the movie takes some liberties; e.g., there really was no list, but this is easily forgiven, as the end result was a significant saving of lives. The story -- and doubtless, the movie -- would have been improved if Keneally's efforts to interview Schindler's wife had been successful. It wasn't until after the book and movie were complete that the significant part that Schindler's wife played in the overall drama was revealed.

Compelling History

Observing the change in one person from self financial gain to utalizing that gain for saving lives of humans who have lost every opportunity to save theirselves was rewarding. Few of us are in a position to have as dramatic an impact as did Schindler, but todays depressed times made me wonder what my goal would be in helping others if it comes to that, and how important it can be in the outcome on life.
