Writ 140/JS211 Alice Bardan Fall 2007 Assignment 3 Representing the Holocaust: How Much is Possible, How Much is Permissible? Purpose: For this essay, you will view two dramatic films about the Holocaust, Steven Spielberg’s Schindler’s List and Roberto Benigni’s La Vita è Bella ( Life is Beautiful); both films were controversial even before they were released, and they engendered a great deal of passionate criticism, pro and con controversy that continues into the present. You will also sample some of the criticism and then, choosing one film for your primary subject, write your own essay that is both a response to the critics and an expression of your own critical view . In that essay, after summarizing the critical positions others have taken in regard to the film, you will defend and/or attack the film both as a project and as a finished work of art. Readings: 1. Spielberg’s Holocaust: Critical Perspectives on Schindler’s List . Edited by Yosefa Loshitzky. (on reserve at Leavey library) intro, article by Bartov, Omer, by Harman,

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
