Evaluation and judgement of living through the Holocaust., 21 September 2005
10/10

The main character of the film is Arthur Goldman played by Maximilian Schell, a survivor of the Holocaust and the natural guilt of surviving such an ordeal. He is also, very proud of his accomplishments, in becoming a millionaire in the United States, but with a streak of sarcasm where the Jewish belief and that of the Christian belief of the control of human destiny through these institutions is complete in its endeavors to fulfill the reason for what man does to man and the imminent conflict that arises form this question. His question is how can this be, how could it happen and most important: Why it did happen?

This film gives one much to think about, especially in our times, in the late nineteenth, and twentieth century, there was a great anti-Semitist feeling that through the Nazi regime was taken to the "Final Solution" and the Holocaust of the Jews. They were singled out as the problem of the state. The state is the problem, not a group of people, this film portrays the Nazi reasoning and the Jews' incomprehension of that reason, and the hate that can be vented onto anyone. All this just to create a national feeling and then: Does not that same feeling create and maintain Israel. ("Exodus" the movie)
