Amon Goeth Ppt Mine

  1. 2. The importance of Goeth <ul><li>The relationship between Schindler and Goeth is one of the central concerns of the film. Spielberg allows for no moral ambiguity between these two characters. </li></ul><ul><li>The repeated contrasts between Schindler and Goeth are used reinforce our view of the superiority of Schindler. </li></ul>
  2. 4. First Impressions <ul><li>Goeth first appears in the film being driven through the streets of the Krakow ghetto discomforted by the onerous task ahead of him. The white handkerchief seems to belie the later crude, banal and tasteless personality of the man who was assigned the task of liquidating the ghetto. </li></ul>
  3. 6. Today is History <ul><li>Goeth’s arrogant hold on power with his address to his troops before the ghetto is cleared is a chilling reminder of the historical importance of the events to follow. “Today is history and you are part of it. By this evening six centuries are a rumour-they never happened.” Scenes of his absolute disregard for Jewish life are numerous. </li></ul>
  4. 8. Contempt for Life <ul><li>Goeth executed the Jewish engineer for suggesting that the construction of the camp was faulty and then ensuring her advice was carried out establishes the contempt he holds for the Jews and his illogicality. Under has rule, no-one knows when or why he’ll shoot . </li></ul>
  5. 10. Balcony Scene <ul><li>A memorable scene of his denial of Jewish life is when he casually picks off Jews in the camp who appear to be idle. He kills as a matter of course in his everyday ritual. Goeth represents the personal face of Nazism. He is evil personified-unfeeling, amoral and banal. </li></ul>
  6. 12. Goeth and Schindler <ul><li>Spielberg juxtaposes Schindler and Goeth to show that they are not necessarily dissimilar, they both have the capacity to exercise power and control but Goeth chooses to exercise this power for the purposes of destruction and ultimately toward human degradation and Schindler chooses to preserve life. </li></ul>
  7. 14. Contrast of Characters <ul><li>The use of repeated contrasts make us see that Schindler is superior not just in moral terms but in his physical stature. Where Goeth is crude, Schindler is refined, Schindler is handsome and desirable, where Goeth is drunk and greedy. Schindler is controlled and unselfish. Goeth is a terrifying portrayal of absolute power over people. </li></ul>
