    12. Reflection Mr. Schindler might have led a tough and unfaithful life, but the World War II really brought out the goodness in him. After studying and thinking about this topic, I have decided that if I was Jewish and living in the 1940s I would have wanted to be on Schindlers list. I think he was an extraordinary person and should be remembered forever not because of his true self but because of what he did during the Holocaust.
