Episode 37: Schindler’s List

Episode 37: Schindler’s List. Directed by Steven Spielberg, starring Liam Neeson in the title role supported by Ben Kingsley as Itzak Stern and Ralph Fiennes as SS Officer Amon Goeth, this film redefined the arch-entertainer Spielberg as a director capable of great power, depth and sincerity. Hard hitting performances drive a story of salvation amongst unimaginable tragedy, cruelty and genocide. Considering the impact that this movie had on nearly everyone who has seen it, we were uneasy about examining its historical accuracy but as that is the whole basis of this podcast we do the best that we can. We hope that you listen and get something positive from the episode. Thank you.
