Schindler’s List

This is yet another period film set during the Holocaust. But, considering the gravity of that entire era and the long-standing effects of World War II, there is unlimited potential for moving films. Schindler’s List takes viewers deep into Germany during the war when Jewish lives were constantly in danger. Liam Neeson portrays real-life industrialist Oskar Schindler, who helped saved over 1,200 Polish-Jewish refugees by employing them in his factory. Schindler gave them jobs, bribed SS soldiers and Nazis to keep them safe, and was able to protect them until their eventual liberation. Not everyone in Germany during this time was blindly following the horrifying new normal. Many were quietly creating revolutions and saving lives.
