In Haaretz, A. J. Goldmann wrote of Kubricks longstanding desire to make a film about the Holocaust, and cited Kubricks brother-in-law and producer, Jan Harlan (from the book Stanley Kubrick Archives) about Kubricks attempt, in 1976, to recruit Isaac Bashevis Singer to write the script:
Singer, whounlike many of his friendswas not a Holocaust survivor, declined, saying, I dont know the first thing about the Holocaust.
Goldmann also cites Kubricks response to the film by Steven Spielberg that put The Aryan Papers out of commission:
Frederic Raphael, who co-authored the screenplay for Eyes Wide Shut, recalls Kubrick questioning whether a film could truly represent the Holocaust in its entirety. After Raphael mentioned "Schindlers List, Kubrick replied: Think thats about the Holocaust? That was about success, wasnt it? The Holocaust is about six million people who get killed. Schindlers List is about 600 who dont. Anything else?
Annars er mikil synd að Kubrick myndin varð aldrei að veruleika. Hann hefði ábyggilega gert þessu viðfangsefni góð skil. Eins og mörgum er kunnugt, þá finnst mér Schindler's List vera afskaplega léleg kvikmynd.
