predictable pandering schlock from the king
Just in case you didn't learn from the first 4000 holocaust films that the
holocaust was really bad........Speilberg goes out on a limb and hits you
over the head with the fact that the holocaust was really bad. He also did
it in a very exploitative pandering manner...to the point of being
grotesque. If you didn't learn from those 4001 holocaust films that the
Nazis also exterminated gypsies, gays etc.... Well the Nazis wiped out a lot
of other groups beside jews too. This sort of thing tows a very dangerous
line...that it was more significant not that 6 million plus people were
exterminated but that it was 6 million jews....according to the majority of
these films and various holocaust memorials the gypsies and gays etc. do not
Where are the numerous memorials documenting the genocide that happened in
this country? (native americans...also numbering in the millions) That would
make a historically relevant film. You think perhaps if native americans had
a very powerful militaristic state that is subservient to u.s. power there
would be more native american genocide memorials? Probably. The fact that
much of this comes from elite american jewish organizations reeks a bit of
hypocrisy, since historically American jews haven't suffered at all at least
compared to native and afro americans (and to even suggest to the contrary
would be a joke). So how does this film function? One might conclude that it
panders to American jews, exploiting guilt perhaps for their lack of
sufficient suffering? If you are interested in actual holocaust history (one
might be shocked that it has very little to do with american jews). I would
suggest reading more serious, less pandering sources. 'the Seventh Million'
by Tom Segev, an Israeli journalist, is very good...'the Holocaust Industry'
by Norman Finkelstein is very good too. One might be shocked to find that
the jews aren't one big group but a bunch of very diverse groups with
radically varying histories etc..

"This list... is an absolute good. The list is life. All around its margins lies the gulf."
The Holocaust is undoubtedly one of the most significant and horrifying
events of the twentieth century. Between 1938 and 1945, the Jewish
population was segregated and persecuted, culminating in the merciless
slaughter of approximately six million Jews (this figure is quoted in
the film, though most historical estimates vary between five and seven
million). Amidst all this butchery, one man decided to make a
difference, famously saving the lives of more than 1100 Jews- men,
women and children who would otherwise have been killed.
Oskar Schindler (played brilliantly by Liam Neeson, "Batman Begins")
was a Sudeten German industrialist, a wealthy womanizer who wasn't
afraid to throw his money around. Always bearing his Nazi Party badge
proudly, Schindler would often frequent nightclubs, extravagantly
showering high-ranked Nazi officers and their girlfriends with
champagne and caviar. With impeccable connections in the black-market,
there was little that he couldn't get his hands on, and he was a good
person to know. Buying friends was something that Schindler could do
well, and he would often use these newfound alliances to aid his own
business ventures. When thousands of the Polish Jew population was
relegated to the Krak.
