Schindler's List as Movie Minutiae

Do you subscribe/read ABC Articulate 2 with the movie minutiae? I love them and always learn something new. Today's is on Schindler's List which is funny cause the night before last night we had a really interesting discussion at dinner (German volunteer and me and the guy running the trip) on why young Australian's think we joined the second world war. Apparently, according to W it's that they think we went in to stop the Nazi's killing Jews. (which of course it isn't).

And then there was this quote from Spielberg in Articulate:

America and Russia and England all knew about the Holocaust when it was happening, and yet we did nothing about it. We didn’t assign any of our forces to stopping the march toward death, the inexorable march toward death. It was a large bloodstain, primary red color on everyone’s radar, but no one did anything about it. And that’s why I wanted to bring the color red in.

Spielberg is one of my favourite directors. I think he is awesome and this little article gives some ideas as to why I do.
