SCHINDLERS LIST an appropriate way of dealing with the holocaust? by Tobias Goldschmidt Summary

In 1951 the idea of producing a film about Oskar Schindler ́s deeds during the Second World War was mentioned by Paul Page. Page was known as Poldek Pfefferberg before he emigrated to the USA as one of 1200 holocaust survivors saved by Schindler.1 In March 1994, just a few months after several racist attacks against asylum seeker hostels in Germany, Steven Spielberg presented his new film to an audience including Ignatz Bubis, head of the Jewish community in Germany, and the German President Richard von Weizäcker in Frankfurt/Main. As the film was so shocking, an old lady from the audience suddenly felt faint and had to be brought out of the hall. The extremely high security precautions at the film debut, as well as the violence against asylum seekers some weeks before, suggested that Anti- Semitism and violence against minorities still were problems in the reunified Federal Republic Of Germany. At the presentation ceremony Spielberg made it clear that this film was meant to be for thousands of US- American high school kids who had not even heard of the Nazis.2 As a Hollywood movie, Schindler’s List was able to open people’s minds to the unique cruelties that had happened during the Second World War. The film became a great commercial success and provoked a firestorm of controversies. The critics’ most important question was whether the film dealt with the holocaust in an appropriate way or not. In order to give the reader an idea about the film’s history, this paper will first explain how Schindler ́s List came into being and what it is about. Afterwards it will present some criticisms on the film. The last chapters discuss common criticisms on Schindler’s List, and develop an own stand towards the question whether Spielberg’s movie was an appropriate way of dealing with the holocaust or not. As it is assumed that the reader roughly knows the film, this paper does not give a summary of the film. 1 Erika Rosenberg (Hrsg.): Ich, Oskar Schindler, München 2000, p. 409 2 Die Tageszeitung, Tränen zur Deutschlandpremiere, 3.3.1994

Why Docudrama? by Alan Rosenthal Summary

Defining and examining the rationale of docudrama, the nine essayists in the first part discuss the history and development of docudrama on TV and in film; they also consider the place of truth in docudrama, the main critiques of the form, and the audience's susceptibilities and expectations. In investigating the actual filmmaking process, the eight essays in the second part focus on how "docudrama as a 'commodity' is created in the United States and England." Part essay, part case study, and part interview, this section also explores how Hollywood and the commercial networks as well as producers and writers work and think. The final part presents an in-depth critique of a number of controversial docudramas that have helped form and shape public opinion, including Battleship Potemkin, Roots, Reds, JFK, Mississippi Burning, Schindler's List, and In the Name of the Father.

Frames of Evil by Caroline Joan Picart,Professor David A Frank, Ph.D.,David A. Frank Summary

Challenging the classic horror frame in American film American filmmakers appropriate the “look” of horror in Holocaust films and often use Nazis and Holocaust imagery to explain evil in the world, say authors Caroline Joan (Kay) S. Picart and David A. Frank. In Frames of Evil: The Holocaust as Horror in American Film, Picart and Frank challenge this classic horror frame—the narrative and visual borders used to demarcate monsters and the monstrous. After examining the way in which directors and producers of the most influential American Holocaust movies default to this Gothic frame, they propose that multiple frames are needed to account for evil and genocide. Using Schindler’s List, The Silence of the Lambs, and Apt Pupil as case studies, the authors provide substantive and critical analyses of these films that transcend the classic horror interpretation. For example, Schindler’s List, say Picart and Frank, has the appearance of a historical docudrama but actually employs the visual rhetoric and narrative devices of the Hollywood horror film. The authors argue that evil has a face: Nazism, which is configured as quintessentially innate, and supernaturally crafty. Frames of Evil, which is augmented by thirty-six film and publicity stills, also explores the commercial exploitation of suffering in film and offers constructive ways of critically evaluating this exploitation. The authors suggest that audiences will recognize their participation in much larger narrative formulas that place a premium on monstrosity and elide the role of modernity in depriving millions of their lives and dignity, often framing the suffering of others in a manner that allows for merely “documentary” enjoyment.

The Booker Prize and the Legacy of Empire by Luke Strongman Summary

This book is about the Booker Prize – the London-based literary award made annually to “the best novel written in English” by a writer from one of those countries belonging to, or formerly part of, the British Commonwealth. The approach to the Prize is thematically historical and spans the award period to 1999. The novels that have won or shared the Prize in this period are examined within a theoretical framework mapping the literary terrain of the fiction. Individual chapters explore themes that occur within the larger narrative formed by this body of novels - collectively invoked cultures, social trends and movements spanning the stages of imperial heyday and decline as perceived over the past three decades. Individually and collectively, the novels mirror, often in terms of more than a single static image, British imperial culture after empire, contesting and reinterpreting perceptions of the historical moment of the British Empire and its legacy in contemporary culture.The body of Booker novels narrates the demise of empire and the emergence of different cultural formations in its aftermath. The novels are grouped for discussion according to the way in which they deal with aspects of the transition from empire to a post-imperial culture - from early imperial expansion, through colonization, retrenchment, decolonization and postcolonial pessimism, to the emergence of tribal nationalisms and post-imperial nation-states. The focus throughout is primarily literary and contingently cultural.

Against the Unspeakable by Naomi Mandel Summary

In the wake of World War II, the Nazi genocide of European Jews has come to stand for "the unspeakable," posing crucial challenges to the representation of suffering, the articulation of identity, and the practice of ethics in an increasingly multinational and multicultural world. In this book, Naomi Mandel argues against the "unspeakable" as any kind of inherent quality of such an event, insisting that the term is a rhetorical tactic strategically employed to further specific cultural and political agendas. While claiming to preserve the uniqueness, sanctity, and inviolability of human suffering, the author writes, the assumption that suffering is unspeakable works to silence and negate the suffering human body and finally enables us to forget our own vulnerability to suffering. Discussing a variety of texts such as Toni Morrison’s Beloved, Steven Spielberg’s Schindler’s List, and William Styron’s Confessions of Nat Turner, Mandel asks: What does the evocation of the limits of language enable writers, authors, and critics to do? With the goal of reconciling language and corporeality and integrating experience into the economy of language, community, identity, and ethics, she shows how, when, and why the term "unspeakable" is used. Mandel draws on critical theory, literary analysis, and film studies to offer a paradigm of reading that will enable the crucial work on comparative atrocities and the representation of suffering to move beyond the impasse of "unspeakability." Her book will appeal to scholars in the study of trauma and genocide, anti-Semitism and racism, as well as in literary, cultural, and comparative ethnic studies.

Lessons and Legacies by Peter Hayes Summary

"In the courtroom and the classroom, in popular media, public policy, and scholarly pursuits, the Holocaust-its origins, its nature, and its implications-remains very much a matter of interest, debate, and controversy. Arriving at a time when a new generation must come to terms with the legacy of the Holocaust or forever lose the benefit of its historical, social, and moral lessons, this volume offers a richly varied, deeply informed perspective on the practice, interpretation, and direction of Holocaust research now and in the future. In their essays the authors-an international group including eminent senior scholars as well those who represent the future of the field-set the agenda for Holocaust studies in the coming years, even as they give readers the means for understanding today's news and views of the Holocaust, whether in court cases involving victims and perpetrators; international, national, and corporate developments; or fictional, documentary, and historical accounts. Several of the essays-such as one on nonarmed "amidah" or resistance and others on the role of gender in the behavior of perpetrators and victims-provide innovative and potentially significant interpretive frameworks for the field of Holocaust studies. Others; for instance, the rounding up of Jews in Italy, Nazi food policy in Eastern Europe, and Nazi anti-Jewish scholarship, emphasize the importance of new sources for reconstructing the historical record. Still others, including essays on the 1964 Frankfurt trial of Auschwitz guards and on the response of the Catholic Church to the question of German guilt, bring a new depth and sophistication to highly charged, sharply politicized topics. Together these essays will inform the future of the Holocaust in scholarly research and in popular understanding."--De l'éditeur.

The Boy on the Wooden Box by Leon Leyson Summary

Leon Leyson (born Leib Lezjon) was only ten years old when the Nazis invaded Poland and his family was forced to relocate to the Krakow ghetto. With incredible luck, perseverance and grit, Leyson was able to survive the sadism of the Nazis, including that of the demonic Amon Goeth, commandant of Plaszow, the concentration camp outside Krakow. Ultimately, it was the generosity and cunning of one man, a man named Oskar Schindler, who saved Leon Leyson's life, and the lives of his mother, his father, and two of his four siblings, by adding their names to his list of workers in his factory - a list that became world renowned: Schindler's List. This, the only memoir published by a former Schindler's List child, perfectly captures the innocence of a small boy who goes through the unthinkable. Most notable is the lack of rancour, the lack of venom, and the abundance of dignity in Mr Leyson's telling. The Boy on the Wooden Boxis a legacy of hope, a memoir unlike anything you've ever read.

Schindlers List? Die Geschichte der "Deutschen Emailwarenfabrik" by Patrice Lörkens Summary

Facharbeit (Schule) aus dem Jahr 2012 im Fachbereich Geschichte Europa - Deutschland - Nationalsozialismus, II. Weltkrieg, Note: voll gut (2+, 12 Punkte), , Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: “Herr Direktor“, so wurde Oskar Schindler von den Menschen genannt, die er stets “meine Juden“ nannte. Doch wie wurde aus dem NSDAP-Mitglied und Parteifreund Oskar Schindler der Judenretter Oskar Schindler? Schindler, der nach und nach sein gesamtes Vermögen in die Rettungsaktion steckte und Produktionsabläufe verfälschte, nur um seine Arbeiter vor dem deutschen Massengenozid zu bewahren. Er, dem es 1938 nur um Profit gegangen war, fragte sich 1945, warum er nicht noch mehr Menschen gerettet hat. Um eine mögliche Antwort auf diese Frage zu finden, müssen mehrere Aspekte beachtet werden; die zeitgenössische Situation in Zentraleuropa, Schindlers Rolle im Machtapparat der Nationalsozialisten, der Erwerb der Krakauer Emaillefabrik und schließlich die Rettung der Juden. Dabei handelt es sich beim Erwerb der Emaillefabrik um den zentralen Aspekt dieser Arbeit.
