2858 - The picture above is from one of the very first scenes in the movie Schlinder's List which is one of the greatest films of all time. The scene consists of a little girl in her bright red coat innocently walking around the Ghetto while her relatives, friends, and community members, are rounded up. Many people know this scene but did you know it's actually based off a real person? Her name was Roma Ligocka, she was a small toddler in the Krakow Ghetto famous for her red winter coat. She would walk around greeting people and enduring the hardships of the times with a smile on her face and her bright red coat. I wouldn't be surprised if that optimism, even if a seemingly miniscule thing in such an awful place, saved a life and convinced them to keep living. Roma and her family would survive in the Ghetto for 3 years until they were taken out by an underground passageway using fake IDs. They would hide with a Polish family until the end of the war and luckily would never be found. She was reluctant to see Schlinders List but the day she did as soon as she got home she began writing. What she wrote would become the book "The Girl in the Red Coat" and is one of the most harrowing and heartbreaking stories of endurance and the Holocaust. This story just goes to show that the human spirit is one of the most strong things in the world.
