His compassion and determination made him a hero within the Jewish community. He suffered chaos and madness, spending millions bribing the Nazis. At one point he even risked his life to rescue the Schindler-Jews. You could say that he gave his Jews a second chance at life. Even though Schindler was a German, he was very fond of his Jew workers.
He was going to take advantage of the German occupation program to “Aryanize” and “Germanize” many of the Jewish and Polish owned businesses.

But something unexpected happened to him during this time.
It was one man for himself throughout the entire graphic novels; many times it is shown in the pictures and said in the writing. In chapter 4 of Maus I, one gets a glimpse of this when “Vladek visits shops that owed him money before the war…”, and how his aptitude in business and trade over the years rewarded him greatly later on. Even when he was near death, Vladek bribed other men with bread just so they would take him down to the train; the train to survival that is.

Different techniques such as lighting, shot types, colour and performance are used to effectively engage the audience and make them feel sadness and sorrow at the horrors of the holocaust and maintain these emotions throughout the film. The technique of “lighting” is used throughout the film to highlight the importance of objects or people. A key example of this technique is the opening scene where we, the audience, are first introduced to Schindler.

Assess the successes and failures of Hitler's domestic policies. Hitler’s domestic policies were a success due to the fact that the Nazis were able to Nazify the German population with little to no opposition.

Many Germans had turned to the Nazis because they had feared communism and sought a way out of the economic crisis, not because they supported the Nazi ideology. When Hitler and the Nazis achieved absolute power by early August 1934, their main goals were to Nazify the German people, improve the economy (with their National Socialistic ideals), and overall maintain absolute power within Germany, while pursuing their radical ideologies.
