HISTORY THROUGH FILM
By Terrence Lee
OVERVIEW OF THE CLASS
My experience of the class is I would say one of a kind because 2016 was the first time this class became a thing and I must admit I thought it would just be a free class at first but slowly i started to figure out that there would be more to just watching movies every week.
Although that's what the class pretty much was the films we watched were a somewhat modern turn on things I learned in my other years in different history classes so I guess I would count this as another History class.

Business man Oskar Schindler is part of the Nazi party and begins to hire Jewish workers after they are being killed off so as long as they work for him they are safe so he begins to to make up a list of every last jewish person he can save until the whole situation is over giving up almost all his wealth in order to save the people he is suppose to be against. The film gives a good outlook on how the jews were treated back then.
