The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas
Nine year-old Bruno knows nothing of the Final Solution or the Holocaust. He is oblivious to the appalling cruelties being inflicted on the people of Europe by his country.
All he knows is that he has been moved from a comfortable home in Berlin to a house in a desolate area where there is nothing to do and no one to play with. Until he meets Shmuel, a boy who lives a strange parallel existence on the other side of the adjoining wire fence and who, like the other people there, wears a uniform of striped pyjamas.
Bruno’s friendship with Shmuel will take him from innocence to revelation. And in exploring what he is unwittingly a part of, he will inevitably become subsumed by the terrible process.
'The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas', by John Boyne, is honestly the best book i have ever read.
Bruno is the main character in this book, he's 9 years old and lives a wealthy lifestyle in Germany with his mother, elder sister, and SS Commandant father. His family moves to the countryside where his father is assigned to take command of a prison camp. A few days later, Bruno becomes friends with a child, named Shmuel. He's strangely dressed in striped pyjamas, who lives behind an electrified fence. Bruno finds out that he is not permitted to be friends with his Shmuel, as he is a Jew, and that the neighboring yard is actually concentration camp.
This book makes you reflect on your life, it makes you think about how lucky you really are to have friends and family that love you and that will/are always there for you. This book can make you smille, but most of the time it will make you cry.
The boy in the stripped pajamas is a wonderful and sad book it's about a boy who moves to a new house called out-with and near itr is a concentration camp he thinks there kids like him but there different there jews his mum sasid not to go there but once his mum left to the shop he went through the forrestand went suddenly he saw a huge gate and there was a little boy they introduced eachother the boys name was Shmuel and Then Bruno they became friends and Bruno visited Shmuel everyday.
