It seems as if Oskar lived his life by the motto that you shouldn’t think twice about doing the right thing, and that you should always know what the right thing to do is. Although Oskar started out being a Nazi, he realized the mistake he made by taking part in killing Jews. Oskar knew that there was no way to stop what the Nazi’s were doing, but was then willing to do as much as he could do to save as many Jews as possible (Steinhouse). The way that Oskar Schindler decided to help the Jews when he could have easily stayed as a Nazi proves that he is a hero. Oskar Schindler showed his heroic actions by risking his own life and using his fortune to save over 1,200 Jews.

Death can contribute the way others remember you and the impact you made on their lives. Death can deprive you from the people you love and time spent.

Obedience is the psychological mechanism that links individual action to political purpose. It is the dispositional cement that binds men to systems of authority. Facts of recent history and observation in daily life suggest that for many persons, obedience maybe be a deeply ingrained behaviour tendency (Adorno, Frenkel-Brunswik, Levinson & Salford, 1950 cited in Moghaddam, 1998) indeed, a proponent impulse overriding training in ethics, sympathy and moral conduct (Snow, 1961 cited in Hewstone et al., 2001).
Frankl's story of his survival of Nazi concentration camps is by now famous. It presents perhaps the ultimate "if he could do it, so can you" case study. Most of our complaints and problems are trivial compared to Frankl's plight as a condemned Jew in Nazi Germany. Reading his Man's Search for Meaning it is difficult to not feel shame over our own trifling complaints. Frankl's message is that the ultimate human freedom is the freedom to control our attitude toward the situations we inherit.
She calls him a "heart attack natural", indicating he was old of age, and inferring that death is the only other thing he will look forward to besides work.
