    Chicago Tribune 1994 ^ | 1994 | Adam Hochschild
    Of all the extraordinary things about "Schindler's List," perhaps the most striking is that it was nearly 50 years after Oskar Schindler's risky acts of heroism before someone made a movie about him. In coming to terms with genocide-something we've had to do a lot of in this century-there seem to be several stages. The first is denial. The second is to acknowledge what happened. And a third is to look for the Schindlers. Because so much has been written about Germans coming to terms with the Holocaust, we often forget that Russians face a similar task. Stalin held power...

    Our country rightly paused last week to honor the service of America’s Korean War veterans and to note our continuing interest in helping protect a democratic South Korea. Fighting in the Korean War came to a halt 65 years ago, when negotiations finally yielded an armistice that halted hostilities, created the Demilitarized Zone and separated the Korean Peninsula into a north-south division. The conflict, which included some of the American military’s most desperate battles and most inspiring demonstrations of heroism, took the lives of 36,000 Americans. Among the dead was Marine Pfc. Edward “Babe” Gomez of Omaha, a graduate of...

The following video is a collection of clips of superhuman dads doing just that, quite literally saving their own kids — or perhaps even the children of others — just in...
