I finished watching a beautiful and very sad film called “The Schindler’s List” stars Liam Neeson (Oskar Schindler), Ben Kingsley (IIzhak Stein), Ralph Fiennes (Amon Goeth). I cannot believe I did not cry. This film was directed by Steven Spielberg. An excellent producer. I have never seen this film, until today. I have heard so much appreciation and good recommendations about this film. Great reviews. It is one of the most honoured films of all time. I was completely blown away.
It is a true story about a man, Oskar Schindler,a member of the Nazi Party, a womaniser, a business man, a way profiteer. A humanitarian.. This man saved lives. More than 1000 Jewish people during the Holocaust. This man made a difference. It is so profound. I feel like have learnt so much.
When I was in year 9 at school, just before starting my GCSEs, we were meant to learn about Hitler and The Holocaust. The teacher who was a substitute did not teach us this subject. He was like, ‘Oh you know this topic in History.’ I was annoyed and angry, i remember. It was the last topic on our agenda, in our last term before the summer holidays began and before our GSCEs began. I wanted to learn. I protested and I was ignored. It’s crazy, now that I have grown up, I feel it is still an area of my history that I don’t know much about. I learn through films like “Schindler’s List”, “The Counterfeits”, books like “The Boy in Striped Pyjamas” by John Boyne.
