What are the main themes of Schindler's List and what examples support these themes?
Schindler's List tells the heroic true story of a Czech factory owner who saved 1,200 Jews from dying in the Nazi concentration camps. Like most Holocaust literature, Schindler's List explores themes of life, death, and the war between good and evil. Oskar Schindler comes to represent the forces of good, working heroically to save his Jewish employees from the evil and corrupt Amon Goeth, a Nazi Commandant who takes bribes, beats his servants, and treats Jews like property to be used as he sees fit. In this battle, Schindler emerges the victor, successfully protecting the Jews who work in his factory; but the Holocaust claimed millions of lives, and the struggle against fascism continues today.
