About the book

Seminar paper from the year 2006 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,7, University of Stuttgart (Institut für Literaturwissenschaft/ Neuere Englische Literatur), course: Introduction to Children's Literature, 7 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: In the following pages I want to show the similarities and differences between the book "When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit" by Judith Kerr and Roberto Benigni's film "Life Is Beautiful".

The next important aspect is the representation of the Holocaust and teaching this topic in school. Finally, I will discuss the ending of both "Life Is Beautiful" and "When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit". The conclusion will comprise the main points and some suggestions for further discussion. The main character in "Life Is Beautiful" Guido Orefice is always in a good mood and he doesn't lose his laughter and humour even in the concentration camp. "Life Is Beautiful" is about a happy living family that is suddenl
