Critical Analysis on Schindler's List

In this assignment, I will present a critical analysis on Schindler's

Schindler's List is a masterpiece, which was directed by arguably, the
greatest director of all time, Steven Spielberg. Steven Spielberg is
Jewish, so to recall the most tragic and horrific event in Jewish
history or you may say the history of man-kind takes a lot of guts and
determination. However, by creating such realism and effectiveness,
consequently, he won seven Oscars, including best picture, and best
Director, I applaud you Mr Spielberg.

The film was produced in 1993 and the principle actors and addresses
were; Liam Neeson, who played Oscar Schindler and became famous by his
excellent approach to this film, Ben Kingsley who played Itzhak Stern,
the accountant, he also played the main role in the film Ghandi. He
still lived to see the film and was there at the Oscars in 1994.
Equally important, Ralph Fiennes played Amos Goeth and finally,
Caroline Goodall who played the adorable Emile Schindler. Finally,
this was previously a book written by Thomas Keneally based on a true
story, called Schindler's Ark.

This film was based on a true story, of a Czech/Nazi businessman.
Oskar Schindler was a vain, glorious and gluttonous businessman, who
becomes unlikely humanitarian amid the barbaric Nazis reign when he
feels he must turn his factory into a refuge for Jews. By doing so he
managed to save over a thousand soulless Jews from the holocaust.

This film was set in Krakow one of the cramped Ghetto's around Poland.
The film was made in Poland in 1992 and released to the Public the
following year.


The principle characters were; Oskar Schindler a glorious businessman
who saved many Jews lives, his wife Emile Schindler, Itzhak Stern the
Jew accountant he saves from execution and the sinister Amos Goeth,
head of the concentration camp and despised Jewish race.

In the film, there are many examples of marginalisation. Firstly,
after many symptoms the Jews were finally placed in the Ghetto where
they were abused and segregated from society. This was done through
hatred, and therefore the Nazis had already began there regime to
marginalise and finally exterminated the Jewish race. Furthermore, the
Jews had to wear bands so you could recognise them; this repressed
them from society even more. The Jews in any case had done no wrong;
they were normally, innocent human being and should have been
marginalised in such an inhumane way. For instance, in the film all
the Jews were kicked out there houses by the Nazi's and had to crowd
into and area to register to enter the Ghetto and were giving bands so
they could be stared at, this showed the marginalisation of Jews.

Moreover, the Nazi's started picking out men, women and even children
if they thought...
