Schindlers List

  1. 1. World War II - Europe Movie Review by: Ryan Lewis
  2. 2. Movie Details <ul><li>Title: Schindler’s List </li></ul><ul><li>Released: December 15, 1993 </li></ul><ul><li>Directed by: Steven Spielberg </li></ul><ul><li>Actors: Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes </li></ul><ul><li>Time Period: 1939 </li></ul><ul><li>Movie Location: Poland </li></ul>
  3. 3. Plot <ul><li>The movie is about a German factory owner named Oskar Schindler. Schindler is greedy and exploits Jews for cheap labor. After witnessing the horrors of the Holocaust he creates a “list” of Jews. He then tries to save these Jews at his own risk and using his own money. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Actor’s Performances <ul><li>The acting in this movie was very good. </li></ul><ul><li>Liam Neeson played Oskar Schindler. He portrayed the character very well and gave an excellent performance. He showed a lot of emotion in the scene where he laments over not saving more Jews than he did. </li></ul><ul><li>Ralph Fiennes, who played Amon Goeth, also did a great job. You could really believe his hatred of Jews was real and made him seem evil. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Lights, Camera, Action <ul><li>The excellent lighting and camera work with the black and white color really captured the time period and made for a very dramatic movie. </li></ul><ul><li>The music in the movie was WWII themed songs and tied every scene together perfectly. </li></ul><ul><li>Costumes, sets and props were very authentic. Some of the clothing was purchased from locals and actually from that time period. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Historic Overview <ul><li>Time Period – World War II in Europe </li></ul><ul><li>Historical Figures – Roosevelt, Hitler, Churchill, Isolationists, Eisenhower </li></ul><ul><li>Historical Events – Lend lease program, Atlantic Charter, the Internment of Japanese Americans, Battle at Normandy </li></ul><ul><li>The war ended when the Germans surrendered on May 7, 1945. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Movie Accuracy <ul><li>I believe that the movie portrayed the actual time period quite well. There were only a few inaccuracies in the film so I believe the plot of the story was true. </li></ul><ul><li>One factual error was that Schindler was never awarded the Golden Nazi Party Badge which he sold in the movie to save more Jews. </li></ul><ul><li>In addition, the Badge he was shown holding was the large military version not the civilian type he would have been awarded. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Facts Learned <ul><li>I learned several things from watching the movie, the videos, the reading material and searching the internet. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>120,000 Japanese Americans were removed from their homes and put into camps. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The war effort achieved huge production goals; 300,000 aircraft, 5,000 cargo ships, 60,000 landing craft and 86,000 tanks. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Propaganda and posters were used to unite the US in the war effort. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Approximately 11 million people were killed during the Holocaust. Most were Jews, but Hitler also targeted homosexuals, communists and other political dissidents, gypsies, slavs, Jehovah's Witnesses, Protestant and Catholic priests, blacks, the mentally and physically disabled, and others. </li></ul></ul>
