it is impossible to concieve of, and retain a sense of such systematic and routinized murder on such a grand scale (all of Europe) where a whole infrastructure was calculated in minute detail simply to irradicate an entire people from the planet . . .
, not simply to irradicate them, but also to squeeze every last possible worth out of them: through slave labour (but fed only enough that they could be worked to death) through appropriation of property, through medical testing, through various body part reappropriation.
Also, I would dare say that Schindler's list is most likely a VERY FAR CRY more historically accurate than any film Gobson has made . . . look at Braveheart . . . a TOTAL travesty of teh history portrayed!!
I gaurantee that you don't know the half of the horror of the Shoa and neither does Gobson!!
. . . that dispicable prick!
pfflam, i said it was his father's opinion not mine,
And i'm polish and believe me i know what a concentration camps look like.
There are more atrocities in our history. not only Jews were killed there you know, ... Close to 10 million people died of HUNGER when Stalin was around, there were hundreds of thousands of people murdered in Yugoslavia, people are being killed now as well. We all know that Jews suffered and no-one denies it here.
I have read this and that about Schindler, also from people who met him, and what Spielberg portrayed is not accurate in many people's opinions, just as what Gibson does will not be accepted as true.
edit: 10 million casualties includes Ukraine, but i was inaccurate by saying it was in Ukraine alone
