Elie Wiesel’s “Night” and Roberto Benigni’s “ Life is Beautiful” Analysis

In both Elie Wiesels Night and Roberto Benignis Life is fine-looking the element ofchance played a major role in the outcome of each character. It impacts the paths of eachfamily in negative and positive modal values. Throughout each familys time in the concentrationcamps they ar so heavily influenced by greed, anger and corruption that without the role ofchance, anticipate and love surviving would lease been impossible. With displays of unknowinglyrunning from the enemy to indiscriminately being selected by the enemy, chance changes theirlives forever.In the beginning of Life Is Beautiful Guidos son Giosue refuses to take a bath for hismother. This later turns out to be a positive impact of chance on this little boy. In theconcentration camp Giosue is asked to strip and take a shower which would have actuallybeen a gas shower intending to kill him.Instead he runs murder and hides and does not get intothat shower. Similarly in the book Night, Eliezers start is selected to be killed becauseof his emaciated and malnourished body in the Buna labour camp. Luckily at that place was asecond selection among the condemned which allowed him to go back to the barracks.Both of these examples show a positive outcome of chance that lead to their success inthe camps.When The Germans received news of the Russians advancing into the Buna camp theystarted killing everyone. At this point in the book Eliezer is in the infirmary due to a footinjury. When the Russians got even closer the entire camp was evacuated and most were slaughtered.In idolize of being killed Eliezer and his father joined the evacuation even though ELiezer was exempt hurt. Little did they know that if they had stayed in the infirmary they would have been rescued by the russians days later. This negative impact of chance prevented Eliezers father from surviving the holocaust.
