September 1, 1939: With the battle for the Polish post office in Danzig and the attack on Westerplatte, the invasion of Poland begins and with it the Second World War in Europe: Wehrmacht troops attack the Free City of Danzig and Poland. This triggers the mutual assistance (British-French declaration of guarantee) and cooperation pacts (German-Soviet non-aggression pact). Great Britain and France demand that Hitler withdraw from Poland immediately.
This date is a good day to watch “Schindler’s List” again, especially in times like these. Let’s watch it together with Ames, a YouTuber. She says about “Schindler’s List”: “This movie is not only very important, it is a masterpiece. Steven Spielberg directed this so brilliantly. I don’t even know how he did it. In respect to his work (I read after watching “The Holocaust was life without light. For me the symbol of life is color. That’s why a film about the Holocaust has to be in black-and-white.”) so my reaction was also done in B&W to honor him and the millions of Jewish people who’s lives were lost.”
