In S1E2, Headmaster Charleston is getting to know Rory on her first day. He asks her about her lack of social activities, and she responds, “I was in the German club for a while, but there were only three of us and then two left for the French club after seeing ‘Schindler’s List,’ so…”
“Schindler’s List” is a Stephen Spielberg film about a man who saved thousands of Jews during the Holocaust by providing them jobs. It is based on the true story of Oscar Schindler, a businessman who spent most of his fortune bribing Nazi officers to keep his Jewish workers safe. It is widely considered one of the best films of all time.
The film depicted many horrors of the Holocaust as well as the antisemitic or apathetic attitudes of many Germans at the time. Schindler himself began as a Nazi supporter and only began his subversive fight after seeing many Jews shot and killed by Nazis.
