10 reading questions for the prologue to Schindler's List by Thomas Keneally. Page numbers in the questions correspond to 1993 Touchstone edition listed here:
- Oskar is described as “Sudeten Germans - Arkansas to their Manhattan.” (page 18) What is implied in this comparison between Schindler and the other men?
- How could the conversation on pages 23-24 be construed as a threat to Schindler? Explain.
I am using this as one alternative activity for students who do not have parental permission to watch the movie. You could also use this to introduce a whole book study.
