Hollywood and the Holocaust begins by discussing movies of the 1930s

One way of understanding what really happens in a story is to ask how the characters change during the course of the tale. In Octavia Butler’s novel Kindred, how do each of these characters change or learn during the story—or do they change at all? Give specific examples to support your points.

the film Imaginary Witness: Hollywood and the Holocaust begins by discussing movies of the 1930s. The Holocaust itself is often dated from 1938-1945. But probably the most famous Hollywood film directly depicting the Holocaust, Steven Speilberg’s Schindler’s List, didn’t appear until 1993. Explain the various reasons over the years that Hollywood failed to address this important event for so long, and what eventually caused them to begin making more movies about it?
Think back over all the characters like in the story of Kindred—Becca, Gemma, Dana, Rufus, Tim O’Brien, Norman Bowker, Jimmy Cross, Kiowa, and all the others—and choose the one who for you is most memorable, and most effectively illustrates the value of using fictional characters to tell a story. Then explain why you’ve made your choice.

Directly answering the question, (b) supporting your answer with specific examples and quotations from the book or film.
