And then I started thinking that perhaps instead of binge watching old TV series I should binge watch movies. I decided just to take on the top 100 movies for a starter. Now I'm very sure I am going to agree with quite a few of the entries on this list but I already know I'm going to argue about a few as well.
So here is #8 of the top 100 Movies of all time according to IMDB:
Schindler's List (1993)
It is quite simply a movie with a strong central character, Oskar Schindler, who joins the Nazi party with the goal of making his fortune in the war. Now, I'm not passing judgement because I know that there were people in many other countries willing to make a quick buck from that very same war.
At first Schindler protects his Jewish workers because it was to his benefit but after witnessing the liquidation of the Krakow ghetto he turns to earnestly saving as many people has he can.
The most poignant moments in the movie involve the little girl in the red dress. I found an excellent article online about this image at http://auschwitz.dk/redgirl.htm .
