The Girl in Red

This was from a beautiful post…

“One of the most striking things about the movie is that even though it was made in 1993, long after the advent of color in movies, Schindler’s List was filmed almost entirely in black and white. Steven Spielberg said that in his mind, a lifeless world is a world without color, and to him it was only natural to have a colorless representation of the Holocaust.

The black and white also set the stage for one of the most iconic movie scenes in film history: The Girl in Red.

Schindler sees this girl twice during the movie, and each time it obviously has a tremendous impact on him. In a colorless world, the girl stands out as the only bit of life. The second time Schindler sees her is on a cart with other Jewish bodies taken away to be burned. This is said to be the moment at which Schindler’s perspective of the Holocaust changes.

At the end of the movie, having saved so many Jews, Schindler still finds himself haunted by all of the people who died, and how he could have saved them.

He babbles about how he could have saved “one more person.” He might be thinking of anyone. He might be thinking of the girl in red.”
