Who sees Oskar Schindler as a hero?

What is a hero and how do we choose them. This is the question which the Oskar Schindler story raised for me?

In brief a true heroes actions should be completely selfless and be for a better cause.

This man went against the will of his own leaders even though it would have been both popular and lucrative to follow suit. In the mean time blowing all his money in order to preserve the lives of persecuted people. It is easy in hindsight to belittle his contribution in light of the ultimate Nazi defeat, however he's actions were executed without this prior knowledge.

For me Schindler is the only true hero that I know of.

How did Oskar Schindler help Jews?

Originally, Schindler sought to profit from the German invasion of Poland in 1939, buying a factory in Krakow at a low price and employing Jews as cheap "slave" labour, which he was able to do under Nazi rule. Schindler initially hid wealthy Jewish investors, possibly for profit, but later he began shielding his workers without regard to cost.

Schindler began actively helping the Jews after witnessing a 1942 raid on the Kraków Ghetto, where soldiers shipped the ghetto inhabitants to the concentration camp at Plaszow. Appalled by the murder of many Jews who had tried to hide, he worked to transfer them to a safer place. He was skilled in persuasive speech and often bribed government officials to avoid being investigated.

Oskar Schindler

Why is the little girl red coat in color in the movie Schindlers list?

I interpret this many ways but these are a few of my reasons..

1. to show the innocence and hopefulness (colourfulness rather than dull and gloomy b+w) of the jews, predominantly children during the holocaust.

2. red has connotations of danger and blood and violence and horror. for it to be the only colour in the movie signifies these things.

3. We see it on a young girl, and we follow her through the town and under her bed to hiding. she is active and we familiarise with the character, and then we see the red coat on a death wagon. by getting the audience to become attached to the character and then for them to be killed makes the process more realistic, and more tragic.

4. to give the movie an artistic element, and show that it is a recent productional recount, not a classic movie.

im only 16 so im sorry if these arent very scientific or in depth :)

Oskar Schindler

Why did Oskar schindler want to help?

After all the interaction he had with the Jews working at his factory, he came to be attached to them as any person would to a friend; initially, he was out to make money from cheap Jewish labour, but by the end he saw Jews as mistreated... just "people". I believe he felt that arbitrarily killing Jews was wrong, and that random killings were a symbol of injustice - because justice is not random.

Or maybe he was hittin' that Jew girl he kissed, in exchange for keeping her friends alive. Nobody knows why only 1100 were on his list...

Don't flame me. I just wanted to bring down the level of epic. Don't take that the wrong way. I did it for the lols, and to give me an excuse to continue this paragraph long enough to let you know that you just lost the game.
