This is good news not only because it’s one of the greatest films of all time, but because there’s a growing ignorance about the Holocaust combined with a resurgent Jew-hatred among the American and worldwide left. Hopefully this film will again educate and enlighten another generation.
Steven Spielberg’s masterpiece Schindler’s List is turning 25 this December. To celebrate, Universal Pictures is adding to the film’s $225 million box office haul by returning a remastered version of the historical drama to big screens across the country.
Schindler’s List tells the true story of Oskar Schindler (Liam Neeson), a German businessman whose efforts to employee Jews during the Holocaust is believed to have saved over 1,000 people from concentration camps, including Auschwitz. The film was nominated for twelve Academy Awards and won seven, including Best Director and Best Picture. It’s also regularly featured on lists of the all-time greatest in cinema.
Of the film’s anniversary, Spielberg told Variety, “Twenty-five years later, I sat through the whole film, which I hadn’t done in so long, and I was just proud.”
