Schindler’s List (1993 Rated R) is the epic story of human cruelty, human compassion, ruthless disregard for human life, and the ability to evolve and grow as a human being.

The movie guide is eight pages long, containing 62 higher-order thinking questions. The vast majority of questions involve the application of ethics, character growth and development, imagery/symbolic meaning, personal interpretation, and reflection questions. I would strongly recommend showing the movie in its entirety, if time permits. This lends to a continuity of reasoning and understanding, which ultimately leads to a more meaningful experience. The students will remember the powerful message of the film more readily if it is placed into the proper context, rather than just abbreviated snippets to illustrate quick points. The movie is designed to view over the course of a week, with about 38 minutes of watching per day. This should leave plenty of time to answer individual questions or facilitate classroom discussion.

Schindler’s List has numerous scenes of extreme violence, executions, and nudity. The scenes depicting these elements are not gratuitous, however. They add to the impact of the movie. I have given a rough timeline as to when the scenes occur, but before showing the film to students, please watch it and decide if you feel there should be other scenes that you might want to skip over. This movie is rated R. Check with your administrators before showing the movie. A slip should be sent home, getting parental permission to see the movie. Having said this, there is a classroom edited version out there. Your school media center might have one, or they might be able to order it. There is also a website, clearplay.com, that offers an edited version of the movie. But I have not viewed the edited version. The edited version will also affect run-time estimates.
