Dennis, I think you have my post on *Schindler's List* confused with another
person's (a faculty member posting questions on behalf of a student, I believe,
though perhaps I'm wrong about that).  At any rate,*my* post concerned the
fact that I myself had been disturbed by the evident surprise that some
audience members clearly experienced as they watched the film and the events
it depicted.  How, I wondered, could they not have encountered this information
before?  The horror I understood, the surprise I did not.  There was a thought-
ful response from someone today in response to my question.
