Essay Topics

Essay Topic 1

Oskar Schindler resisted the Nazi occupation by hiring Jews, rather than choosing a more vocal or forceful resistance. Why do you think he chose this path? Potentially, he could have been more vocal, or even have become a spy, since he had some experience in that field. Talk about other forms of resistance he could have chosen, and why you believe, based on what you've read in the book, he chose to "resist" via his factory. Use at least one specific example from the book to back up your statement.

Essay Topic 2

Chapters 26-30 are full of powerful imagery: the courtship of Rebecca and Josef even as new fences are being built, the smoke of the crematoria in the country air, and the ever-increasing burdens that Schindler has to overcome to keep his Jewish workers safe. We're also more than halfway through the book. Examine the imagery in this section of the book, as well as its placement in the plot line and with the story development. What changes do we see in Schindler from chapter 26 to chapter 30? What techniques and story details does Keneally use to avoid the "sagging middle" here? Write at least one page answering the above questions, and cite at least three specific examples from within these chapters in your essay.

Essay Topic 3

The setting of a book can function almost as another character. Describe how the setting of Schindler's List, especially the descriptions of Emalia, Plaszow, and Brinnlitz, surround the characters and become part of the fabric of the story. Discuss what effect the setting has on the book as a whole, and how the book might be different if it had been set somewhere else.
