In Schindler's List (1993), Czurda ordered Oskar's workers to shovel snow:
CZURDA: You shouldn't think of them as yours, Oskar. You need to understand that some of the officers here don't give a damn about production. To them, it's a matter of national priority that Jews be made to shovel snow. It's got nothing to do with reality, Oskar. You know it and I know it. Jews shoveling snow, it's got a ritual significance.
What does "It's got nothing to do with reality" mean?
I think he means, “it does not have to make sense.” Or “we want them to shovel snow because we want power over them, not because the snow needs to be shoveled”
Honestly not sure about that one.
