Schindler's List Essay

644 words - 3 pages

Schindler's list has many stereotypes the most obvious one is that every Jew is bad and must die. When the guards pull someone out of their place the stereotype is that the guard will kill the person who has been pulled out of line. One point in the movie one guard went soft and after his gun misfired on an older worker he decided to let the man go free. The older the worker the more worthless they are so they were also killed, as were children and most elderly women. The younger generations of workers were judged equally, as long as they proved themselves worthwhile they could stay working, and are able to gain just one more day of life.Persuasion was a less obvious lesson in the movie. But the further you get into the movie the more persuading you will see. ...view middle of the document...

After Schindler realizes that these people are going to be shuffled off to Auschwitz he rushes out to pay the officials for these people to spare their lives. After they were rescued the Jewish workers were allowed to celebrate the Sabbath day, and other rituals. A couple of days after these Jewish workers were rescued the war ended and they were set free.Many guards were influenced to kill the Jews because everyone said that they were worthless and didn't deserve to live. Guards would just ask a random question and if they didn't like the Jew's answer they were shot and killed. Jews were influenced to work hard so they could live. If they didn't pass a physical or got sick they were killed because they became worthless to the camps success. The main influence in the movie is when Schindler sees the little girl in red. This point to me symbolized innocence, Schindler always saw her and from the first time he saw her he knew that what he was doing was wrong. Schindler then began working on getting th prisioners to come work for his plant. When the guards were hired to work at his plant he made it clear that everyone was equal, and that no one was to be killed because they were Jewish. In Schindler's closing words he said to the guards "You can go home men or you can go home murders, you choose your fate. I suggest that all of you go home men." Everyone went home men, no one killed any Jews. After the war was over Schindler was a hunted man, he was wanted for protecting the Jews from the war. Schindler was told by the Jews that they all supported him and they had signed a paper symbolizing their thanks to him for saving their life. In the end of the movie the little girl in red did end up dying.
