The use of sound, lighting and colour were very powerful techniques that were used to express characters, emotions and different concepts. Schindlers List begins with a Jewish family sitting down for Sabbath, lighting candles and singing Jewish hymns. The very first symbol is the idea of the candle and the light being extinguished, just like the lives that were extinguished during the Holocaust. The colour starts to fade from the scene and only the fire from the Shabbat candlesticks is in colour. The burning fire blows out and the movie fades to black and white symbolising what was then and the dark times that the Jewish people will be facing.
As Schindler went to the labor camps he would be witness to many brutal shootings of the innocent and undeserving Jew’s. As the Holocaust worsened, Schindler heard more horrific stories which he could no longer ignore and quickly wrote up a list, with the help of his financial advisor, an intelligent Jew, Itzak Stern. With the names of hundreds of Jews. Schindler took the list to the commandant of the labor camp and demanded ‘what is one worth to you’, ‘tell me, and just tell me, what one is worth!’ This is the major turning point for the character of Schindler as we see he has realized the true value of money and life. This quote shows how he is willing to pay any amount to save the lives of the Jew’s.
Schindler did not really care about Jews who were about to die in the camps. Moreover he also burned all the Jews money after they left from their houses to show that he also can earn more money and he proved that by hiring Jews working for him in his factory. Moreover, Schindler sends gift baskets filled with all the goods to several different Nazi officers in order to get more workers as needed. He starts making connection with the people of Nazi’s force and chosen several Jews to work for him. He convinced Jews to work for him and some of them were chosen to be work in specific place and some were sent into ghetto and camps.
The United Nations keeps the peace and allows us to punish those whom cause chaos, terror, and civil unrest. A great example of this would be the Nuremberg Trials. These were a series of trials that resulted in the incarceration of many of the higher ranked Nazi officers as well as the men whom organized, ran, and controlled the concentration camps. Besides the U.N., another positive effect that arose from the Holocaust and World War was the creation of Israel. Israel was originally created after a large amount of land was seized from the Palestinians as a place for the relocation of the escaping Jews from Europe.
Ideas on Anne Bradstreet’s “Here Follows Some Verses upon the Burning of Our House, July 10th, 1666” a. Anne Bradstreet’s poem from personal experience “Here Follows Some Verses upon the Burning of Our House, July 10th, 1666” was published in 1867. a. Anne Bradstreet was awakened in the night to find her house on fire. She not only witnessed her home, but all of her possessions being consumed by the fire. She sadly recounts particular items and the place they once had in the house. However, her tone quickly changes from sadness of things lost to appreciation of what lies ahead. Bradstreet gives glory to God once she refocuses on the heavenly home she will inherit.
This time is said to be one of the darkest periods in human history as it explores the extent that the Nazi’s went through in order to eliminate any “impure” groups from Germany. Schindler was a profiteering womanizer during the war, but as the film progresses, Schindler begins to show gratitude towards the Jews and make his goal to aid as many as he could. Schindler does this by writing a list and buying as many Jews as he can so they could work in his factories and, in the end, triumphs by saving 1,100 Jews. Triumph of the human spirit plays a prominent role in this film. Jews from “Schindler’s List” presents to us their unbroken spirit and will to survive.
Hitler captured people in his speeches with his promises of a better Germany, but he also taught his hatred of Jews in the process. “It was Hitler’s belief that the Jews had too much money, land and the power of the press.” (library.thinkquest.org) Hitler caused mass hysteria against Jews by creating this frame of mind that they were the cause of all things bad just like Abigail and her posse did to Salem. Unfortunately, the people who are completely innocent in these cases get punished the most. In both the Salem witch trials and the Holocaust many people were killed who were not
The opening line “today I’m going to kill something” evokes a shocking and chilling image of the poetic persona. The first person narrative allows the narrator to directly interact his thoughts and plans the reader. Whereas in shooting stars “after I no longer speak they break our fingers” this creates a horrific image in the readers mind. The line is written in present tense, bringing the event of holocaust closer to us. In the poem she is kept anonymous which suggests she is one of the six million Jews that died in the holocaust.
Parish churches and the Interior Ministry supported the genocide by presenting birth records showing who was Jewish; the Post Office delivered the deportation and denaturalization orders; the Finance Ministry took away Jewish property; German businesses fired Jewish workers and took away stock that belonged to the Jews. The universities refused to admit Jews, denied degrees to those already studying, and fired Jewish academics; government transport offices organized the trains that were scheduled for the deportation to the camps; German pharmacist
These themes are the triumph of the human spirit, the difference one individual can make, and the dangerous ease of denial. This drama-film is about the journey of Schindler’s Jews (Schindlerjuden) throughout the holocaust from the year 1939 to the year 1945. This time is known as ‘one of the darkest periods in human history’ as it explores the extent Nazi’s went to in order to eliminate any ‘impure’ groups form Germany and eventually the world. These impure groups were made up of Jews, Gypsies, homosexuals, and the handicapped, among others. There are no definite numbers known of people who were killed during the time but it was estimated 6 million perished during these horrific 6 years.
