A quiz covering the first 40 minutes of the movie Schindler's List.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Why did the Jews have to register with the Germans?

    • A.

      So the Germans could keep track of the Jews and their names.

    • B.

      So the Jews could keep track of the Germans and their names.

    • C.

      So the Jews could vote.

    Correct Answer
    A. So the Germans could keep track of the Jews and their names.
    Explanation
    During the Holocaust, the Nazis implemented various discriminatory measures against Jews, including registering them. By having the Jews register with the Germans, the Nazis aimed to establish a system of control and surveillance over the Jewish population. This allowed the Germans to keep track of the Jews, monitor their movements, and ultimately facilitate their persecution and deportation. The registration process enabled the Nazis to identify and target Jews more easily, contributing to their systematic discrimination and eventual genocide.

    Explanation
    Oskar Schindler spent so much money buying dinner and drinks for the German officials because he wanted them to think he was a good guy so they would help him later. By showing generosity and kindness towards them, Schindler aimed to gain their favor and build positive relationships.

    What is the Judenrat?

    • A.

      The name for all the Jews in the ghetto.

    • B.

      The name for the Jews who got away from the Germans.

    • C.

      The Jewish Council who worked for the Germans.

    Correct Answer
    C. The Jewish Council who worked for the Germans.
    Explanation
    The Judenrat refers to the Jewish Council that was established by the Nazis during the Holocaust. These councils were comprised of Jewish leaders who were forced to collaborate with the Germans in implementing their policies. The Judenrat's responsibilities included carrying out German orders, managing the Jewish population in ghettos, and providing assistance to the Germans in the deportation of Jews to concentration camps. While the other options may seem plausible, they do not accurately depict the role and function of the Judenrat during this period.

    • A.

      He would be shot.

    • B.

      He would be put in prison.

    • C.

      He would be able to escape.

    Correct Answer
    A. He would be shot.
    Explanation
    If a Jew took off his star armband, he would be shot. During the Holocaust, Jews were required to wear a yellow star armband as a means of identification and discrimination. Removing the armband would be seen as an act of defiance or resistance against the Nazi regime, and the consequence for such an action was often execution. This harsh punishment aimed to instill fear and maintain control over the Jewish population.

    Correct Answer
    B. To hide while they traded on the Black Market.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "To hide while they traded on the Black Market." This answer suggests that the Jewish businessmen chose to meet in the Catholic church in order to conceal their illegal activities of trading on the Black Market. By meeting in a place of worship, they could avoid suspicion and scrutiny from authorities who may have been monitoring their activities.

This preference for attractive women may indicate that Schindler had ulterior motives or was more concerned with appearances rather than qualifications for the job.

    The significance of Oskar Schindler thanking his Jewish factory manager lies in the fact that it demonstrated his respect for him despite his Jewish heritage. This is important because during that time, Jews were being persecuted and discriminated against in Nazi Germany. By expressing gratitude towards his Jewish manager, Schindler defied the prevailing prejudice and recognized the value and contributions of his employee, irrespective of his religious background.
