This resource includes three reading passages about Oskar Schindler, who saved over a thousand people from death by employing them in his factory in Nazi-occupied Poland. The biographical texts concentrate mainly on his activities during the war but do provide information on his early life as well. Students do not have to watch the movie Schindler's List to benefit from this resource; it can be used in World History class while studying the Holocaust. It can also be used in English class as a non-fiction resource.
Each of the passages has a discussion point at the bottom of the page - room has been left for student comments (or the discussion can be done orally of course!).
Two pages of questions (assessing comprehension as well as expressing opinions while citing evidence) are included - one has lines for student answers but I have also provided the questions in list format if you prefer to use them that way.
An additional activity completes the resource: students visit a website (URL included) and choose two accounts of people who helped rescue Jews during WWII and then compare and contrast.
I also have a movie review activity for the film (students do not actually have to watch the movie to complete this activity) in my store: Schindlers List Movie Review Activity
