Movie-A-Day #27: Schindler’s List (1993).

January 27, 2011

Today is International Holocaust Remembrance Day, the date chosen because it marks the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, the Nazis’ most notorious concentration camp, in 1945. The Holocaust has been the subject of dozens of films – both documentary and drama – and rightly so, given how vital it is to remember the lessons of that terrible chapter of human history. Today’s recommendation is “Schindler’s List,” but really, almost any of these others would be good choices as well. “Life is Beautiful,” “The Diary of Anne Frank,” “The Pianist,” and a host of others – they all do honor to the memories of the victims of the Holocaust.

    I seriously can’t believe I still haven’t seen Schindler’s List.
