Schindler's List

Length: 6 Pages 1488 Words

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. They were then separated from their families, “men to the left and women to the right”, and were placed in concentration camps, where most of them were killed and cremated. In 1993, Steven Spielberg directed a film, Schindler’s List, that depicted the life of one man who risked his life and money to save the few Jewish families he could. This man, Oskar Schindler, ran a factory, which kept the prisoners from being sent to their death. The horror that this group of people had to go through at the hands of the Nazis is shown extremely well by even a few of the dramatic moments in this film. At the beginning of the film, there is a scene where the Jews are made to leave their homes and move to the ghetto. They pack all the belongings they can fit in one suitcase except for their gold, silver, and anything else that was of great value, which was taken by the SS soldiers. There is one specific family in this scene that is from the richest part of the town. They a Continue...

In conclusion, the Holocaust was a very traumatic time for the whole country of Germany, especially for the Jewish religion. Many of them hid in the floorboards of their rooms, in the furnace, and even in the outdoor toilets. This scares some of the women because they are all pale, so they make themselves bleed so they can take the blood and put it on their cheeks as rouge. They will have to run in front of the doctors naked and they might be chosen to be killed. The women were scared when they entered that room because they thought they were about to die. On the way there many town residents, who were thrilled to see that these "rats", as the Jews were known as, were leaving their country, confronted them. While the families are at the concentration camp, many are sick, tired and undernourished. Some families would hide under the floor or in a piano or even under the bed, so that they would not have to leave. After they have decided, they leave their house and begin to walk with the rest of the community to their new home in the ghetto. The children are seen waving and smiling not knowing what is about to happen to them. While the audience is watching this happen, they see a wheelbarrow go through the scene with a girl in it who is wearing a red jacket. It is the same little girl from the town scene before. The look of the women"tms faces as they stare up at the faucets waiting for their death to come is so horrifying that many of the audience has to turn away. When the female inmates are supposed to be taken to Schindler"tms factory they are "accidentally" brought to Auschwitz, the most deadly of all the camps. Prisoners are also being made to lift the bodies up to the conveyor belt that leading to the mountain.
