Schindler’s list

The movie Schindler;s List touched me in many ways.I didn;t realize the extent of the horror that the Jews faced. The thought that someone could come and barge in to my house and take all my belongings scares me. I now feel more sympathy than ever for the Jews who had to suffer through this horrible ordeal.

Schindler notices this, and he then takes the initiative to change the situation by hiring Jews as ammunition factory workers.Also, her death can be viewed as the most angelic and innocent child suffering the wrath of the concentration camps.

I admire his skills and determination that help him do what he needs to do to get the job done. Even if it included bribes, Schindler was bent upon keeping the Jews from being
