Amazon critic Jeff Shannon says of Steven Spielberg's Schindler's List that it has an emphasis on absolute authenticity, but is it really that authentic when compared to other late 20th century films about the Holocaust? My aim in these pages is to compare Schindler's List, Sophie's Choice and The Pianist in terms of realism and authenticity; and together with it the very notion of authenticity and realism in film and the issue of representation of the Holocaust itself.

[FR] [DE] [UK]


Schindler's List is an American 1993 film based on the book Schindler's Ark by Thomas Keneally, published in the United States as Schindler's List and subsequently re-issued in Commonwealth countries under that name as well. The film, adapted by Steven Zaillian and directed by Steven Spielberg, relates the tale of Oskar Schindler, a German Catholic businessman who was instrumental in saving the lives of over one thousand Polish Jews during the Holocaust. The title refers to a list of the names of 1,100 Jews whom Schindler hired to work in his factory and kept from being sent to the concentration camps.

Schindler's List is consistently ranked amongst the finest movies of all time. It is currently ranked as 9th best film by the American Film Institute, and, as of September 18, 2006, rated number seven on the top 250 films on the Internet Movie Database with an 8.8/10 rating. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schindler%27s_List
