Resum: Steven Spielberg's Schindler's List (1993)' Oliver Stone's Heaven and Earth (1993) and Brian Gilbert's Not without my Daughter (1991) are based on novels which are in their turn based on real life events. While Thomas Keneally's Schindler 'S Ark (1982) is a respected literary text that deals with the ambiguities of vice and virtue within Nazism, Le Ly Hayslip's novelised autobiography (two volumes, When Heaven and Earth Changed Places ( 1989) and Child of War,Woman of Peace (1993)) and Betty Mahmoody's work (1989) are popular tests aimed at transmitting the experience of two women living respectively in Vietnam and Iran in the most conflictive periods of the recent history of these countries. The three films have their political content in common but, since their artistic qualities are diverse, the general public's interest in the political and historical conflicts they respectively depict has been aroused in different measure. It is my aim to analyze the boundaries between personal tragedy and political propaganda in these texts and also to discuss whether a critica1 judgement in artistic terms is the appropriate strategy to read these screen adaptations.
