Life Is Beautiful

 

I watched Life Is Beautiful (La vita è bella). It’s about a man, his child, and the wife that get taken over by the Nazis. The father is the only guy that dies in the family. The mother isn’t a Jew, but the father and son are. The dad says something about a 1000 point game and that the prize is a real tank (apart from the kid’s toy tank!) and that the Germans get lolipops. He says this Mumbo Jumbo so not scare his kid.

I liked the movie,  I was scared for the kid and was sad for the dad.

My great aunt was a Jew who survived the Nazis, but her family didn’t. I think she survived because she could translate German.

I heard a riddle from the movie. It was:

What disappears after you say its name?

 

 

 

Silence.
