Given that this was a historical genocide that represented the highest degree of inhumane treatment of women, children and even men, there have been several books that have been written based on this political adversity. Additionally, there are several documentaries that have been developed to depict this animosity as well as various films. Among these films include the film American historical film, Schindler’s List (1993) written by Steven Zaillian as well as co-created and directed by Stephen Spielberg. There is also the 2011 polish historical drama film, In The Darkness (2011) directed by Agnieszka Holland. These two films have a common storyline that entails the unveilings of the Holocaust during the World War II. The major reason for this adoption of the black and white aspect was not only for the purpose of emulating the preceding documentary from which it was developed, but also to maintain and stimulate the feel of originality of the actual events of the Holocaust during this era.

Another outstanding aspect of the film is the representation of the Krakow ghetto. This is a pure incident of representation of brutality. During the Nazi reign, the Jewish were organized into secluded low-life areas; the ghettos where they could later be deported for extermination. The ghettos had the worst human conditions whereby the essential amenities and human needs were practically controlled by the Nazi regime. The Jews were considered to be the vulnerable, more of an abominated group of minorities in Germany. They were the flawed few. This, therefore, made them illegal in the country. It was a threat and a violation of the law to be a living Jew in Nazi Germany. Even worse, it was an illegal endeavor to shelter a Jew.
