Itzhak Perlman: Schindler’s List

Soundtrack by John Williams:

From Steven Spielberg’s 1993 classic Schindler’s List. Starring Liam Neeson as Oskar Schindler, Ralph Fiennes as SS officer Amon Goeth, and Ben Kingsley as Schindler’s accountant Itzhak Stern.

Schindler's List

Based on the novel Schindler’s Ark by Australian novelist, Thomas Keneally. Schindler, a German businessman, saved the lives of more than a thousand Polish-Jewish refugees during the Holocaust by employing them in his factories.

The world is not black and white like the film, however, and it will be a safer place when we accept that both Schindler and Goeth reside in all of us.

    Thanks Colin, we must never let this happen again but it is so easy to turn a blind eye to tyranny if its not in your backyard. These days your backyard doesn’t have a fence.
