Response: In this book one real event in the holocaust was gas chambers. In the last few chapters Shmule and Bruno had been planing to meet inside the fence. Once inside the fence the boys are told to go on a march that takes them to the gas chambers where they are killed. Another real event in book is undernourishment. Since Shmule is the concentration camp they give him VERY little food and in chapter 12 Bruno bring Shmule some bread and he is so hungry that he devours it in seconds. Last, are the guards in the concentration camp. In this book the Nazis guards think of Jewish people as dirt and in WW2 they killed nearly 3 million people without a hint of guilt. It is sad but true that the absolutely hated there prisoners.
