The Girl in the Red Coat

Watch this clip from “Schindler’s List.”

In this scene, Oscar Schindler stand at the Gates of Hell outside a Jewish ghetto, and he begins to see the monster he and his nation have become.

Warning: this clip is graphic.

As is often the case, Oscar Schindler was so close to the monstrosity in his culture that he didn’t see it until this moment.

How did the children singing in the background color the monstrosities in the video?

What do you think the little girl in the red coat represents–both for the narrative and for you?

What “monstrosities” are you living with?
