Polanski has conveyed throughout the film, that Szpilmans love of music and his will to survive helped him in his survival through the horrific ordeal. Polanskis focus relates to the opinion of A. Scott of the New York Times, who draws attention to what he considers to be Polanskis "trademark". It is "what might be called humane sadism.

In Obama’s Nobel Prize acceptance speech, he says, “the instruments of war do have a role to play in preserving the peace.” Many countries have received help from our men and women in the service. War brought our country to aid many other countries.
