The Boy in the Stripped Pajamas

Revolutionary Experiences shared by John Boyne


The Boy in the Striped Pajamas investigates a 9-year-old boy named Bruno. Bruno, a curious and genuine child, moves to a new home in Auschwitz because of his father's lead position in the Nazi movement. Missing his friends, grandparents, and colleagues, Bruno pursues his life at Auschwitz. Given curiosity, Bruno discovers a tall, steel fence. There he meets Shmuel- a Jewish boy from Poland who shares the same date of birth as Bruno. Bruno doesn't realize that Shmuel is in a concentration camp, and when Shmuel allows Bruno to come under the fence to help find Shmuel's father, the situation puts itself onto a fatal collision course.
