Schindler’s List

April 27, 2016

I have been watching the movie (again) Schindler’s List , 1993. I have seen it many times, everyone should see it at once!  It is about the German Oskar Schindler, the entreprenneur who saved hundreds of Jewish workers (about 1,200 in total) he had employed in a munitions factory. He became what the Jews call a Righteous Gentile for saving many Jewish lives.  A must see especially for us Gentile Christians!  For Jesus was and is always a Jew, i.e. the Jewish Messiah, and too the Christ of all true Christians, Jewish and Gentile!

Eph. 2: 11-22

*Writer Herbert Steinhouse, who interviewed him in 1948, wrote that “Schindler’s exceptional deeds stemmed from just that elementary sense of decency and humanity that our sophisticated age seldom sincerely believes in. A repentant opportunist saw the light and rebelled against the sadism and vile criminality all around him.”[39] In a 1983 television documentary, Schindler was quoted as saying, “I felt that the Jews were being destroyed. I had to help them; there was no choice.”[89] (Wiki)

And that choice is still before us today in some measure of Modern Israel! (Fr. R.)

    Indeed a film which is challenging, moving, horrific, showing hope, and how our mighty God uses flawed mankind as he once used kings of Babylon to achieve his ends, all rolled into one film.
