"The Girl in Red" is a character talked about as much as the movie itself! However, I don't exactly understand the significance of the character itself and the usage of the color.
Wikipedia mentions that
Spielberg said the scene was intended to symbolise how members of the highest levels of government in the United States knew the Holocaust was occurring, yet did nothing to stop it
...the red symbolises "innocence, hope or the red blood of the Jewish people being sacrificed in the horror of the Holocaust.
Maybe the usage of the color Red is justified by associating it with the blood and suffering of the Jewish people. I am looking for interpretations of the character and the way it was portrayed?
