The goals that Schindler was going towards changed throughout his life. Schindler had one goal and that was to get rich. Schindler achieved that goal through slave labor and schmoozing nazi leaders. Schindler did very bad things but as things progressed and he witnessed the liquidation of the ghetto he changed. His goals then were to save as many jews as he could.
The Zegota The Zegota was a group of brave people who saved thousands of lives and risked their own lives in the process to save others during World War Two while the Nazi were causing formidable views into the people. The Zegota helped thousands of Jews escape Nazi controlled europe demonstrating that more people should have been saved by others standing up to the Nazis. Background The Zegota was a government financed organized in Europe that hid Jews during World War Two why would people risk their lives to save others? “Zagota played a crucial role in the rescue of several thousand Jews who had survived the massive deportations in the summer of 1942” (Tomaszewski). Although the Zegota operated in a few places it was mostly based in
Prisoner B-3087 In the book i read it starts off saying how Yanek has been taken to a prison by the nazis. He wakes up in his barracks he is fifteen years old. There was no cell phones he couldn 't call anyone and there was no escaping. Each day he would work and starve and if he was caught not working he would be killed. All of the other prisoners knew the rules.
They were trying to collect 2 million paper clips. When the got 2 million, they put it in a railroad car used to ship the Jews to concentration camps. This was compassion to the Jewish people because we’re showing them that we remember. Compassion is NOT a human right. But it is just the right thing to do.
Leib Lejzon (known now as Leon Leyson) and most of his family survived the Holocaust; they probably would not have survived without Oskar Schindeler. Oskar Schindeler was a Nazi but he had a sense in humanity. Oskar Schindeler saved the family from certain death multiple times. The Lejzon family was a Jewish family that lived in Krakow. After some time passed in Krakow the family was sent to the ghetto built in their town.
German businessman Oskar Schindler became an unlikely hero when he saved hundreds of Jews in Poland and Czechoslovakia from death at the hands of the Nazis during World War II (1939–45). By employing them in his factory, Schindler protected them from the wrath of the Nazi Party and preserved generations of Jewish families (“Oskar Schindler Biography”). Early Years As a child Oskar Schindler was a very popular boy and had many friends at school, he attended a German-language school, also known as Sudetenland. Schindler was not a very impressive student and often failed most of his classes. Schindler was the first born child to the parents of Hans and Louisa Schindler on April 28th 1908 to a wealthy family in Zwittau in Czechoslovakia.
Some of the jews in the train didn 't know what was going to happen when they arrived to the camp, but some knew what was going to happen because they had heard news from people of what the nazis had and are going to do to the Jews. It must of have been the scariest day for the Jews who had arrived at the death camp. Frang Stangl was a first commandant who had managed about 700 Jewish workers occupied nonpermanent to service the camp. He was an SS officer and in April 1942 he had arrived to take command at sobibor. Frang Stangl had instructed only 20-30 SS men he had picked mostly from the T4 program.
Lastly, Pope John Paul II talks about what he experienced because of the holocaust. One part of his speech states, “My own personal memories are of all that happened when the Nazis occupied Poland during the war. I remember my Jewish friends and neighbors, some of whom perished, while others survived. I have come to Yad Vashem to pay homage to the millions of Jewish people who, stripped of everything, especially of human dignity, were murdered in the Holocaust. More than half a century has passed, but the memories remain”(online).
The Reason Behind Schindler’s Rescue Did Oskar Schindler save the Jews for his pleasure or to please others? Oskar is the type of man who would do anything to help himself or his business, but when he starts to save more and more Jews, his true self-starts to show. Director Steven Spielberg shows the viewers the different sides of Schindler. Viewers notice that in the beginning, Schindler seems eager to please himself, but as the movie progresses, his motivation is to save others for their sake. In the beginning of the movie, Oskar wanted to please himself by having Jews work in his factory and not having to pay them.
Once they were suspicious, they announced “Heil Hitler,” and the two children at the corner sprang up and did the salute all children of the Nazi party did. When Sthal turned away from his children, Bill Murray had his gun pointed to him and took him hostage to discover the whereabouts of the artwork. I also loved one scene where Bill Murray and Bob Balaban are both caught at gunpoint by a wandering, young German soldier, and instead of fighting, Bill Murray set down his gun, sat down, and handed the soldier a cigarrett. The soldier then sat down and handed one to Bob Balaban, and the three just sat together smiling, not being able to communicate, but all eaqually happy. The soldier walked off and let them be.
