2 Events From the Beginning of the Book.

  • Bruno and his family move from Berlin to Poland (Chapter 1). This changes the whole story if they didn't move it wouldn't have the plot it did. Bruno's family had to move because his dad got called up for work.
  • Bruno explores the new house and finds a bunch of Jews next to the house and he doesn't tell dad because he thinks he will get in trouble (chapter 6). This changes the story because it gives Bruno the chance to look around and make new friends and he realizes that they are Jew and he shouldn't talk to them.

2 Events From the Middle of the Book.

  • Bruno meets Shummel and they became best friends instantly (chapter 10). This needed to happen in the book for the rest of the story to have the story carry on. IF they did not meet Bruno would not have gone in the camp and he would still be alive.
  • Bruno's Grandmother dies of old age (chapter 16). This doesnt really need to happen in the story it didnt affect the plot.

2 Events From the End of the Book.
