Essay Topic 1
Chapter 16 describes a violent act of resistance by the ZOB and Halutz Youth. They blew up a restaurant, killing several SS men and injuring even more. Some would call that terrorism. Others would call it justified resistance. List at least three methods of resistance that Jewish people employed in response to the German persecution (the Jewish people do not have to have survived their act of resistance for it to count). Describe the acts of resistance, and how effective they were (or not) against the Nazis, both in the short term as well as the long term.
Essay Topic 2
No novel can succeed without conflict. Many writers and writing teachers believe there are five basic kinds of conflict: man vs. man (or person vs. person), man vs. self, man vs. society, man vs. nature, and man vs. the supernatural. Some also believe in a sixth type of conflict, man vs. technology. What types of conflict have you observed in this novel? Be sure to give at least one specific example for each type that you list.
Essay Topic 3
In Chapter 9, Oskar's old motorcycle-riding friends push him toward a reconciliation with his father, even as Oskar can't bring himself to give up his mistresses and bring his wife to Cracow to live with him. He's also begun to be inconvenienced by the number of his workers being press-ganged each day to shovel snow or perform other menial tasks. Oskar originally saw his father as a larger-than-life figure, but when he finally spoke with him, Keneally says, "so Oskar decided that even Herr Hans Schindler was human." Describe how you think these things mirror each other, showing us the development in the story of Oskar Schindler as a more well-rounded person, allowing us to understand some possible motivation behind the risks he would eventually take.
