The stance that I currently hold with this debate is closer towards life in prison. Not because I don’t fully believe that someone who kills a lot of people or does just horrible acts should 100% be punished and possibly killed themselves, but because I find more benefits...

I personally thought this movie was excellent because it challenged the way that most people would want to think about the Holocaust. It is hard to bring an element of comedy to these events but Life is Beautiful...
