The boy in the Striped Pajamas is a film with a WW11 setting. The drama explores horrors of extermination in German concentration camps. The movie is mainly based on two characters; one is a young boy called Bruno who lives in Berlin with his family and Shmuel a young Jew in a concentration camp.
Bruno’s father is promoted after a visit by Adolf Hitler in their home, and he has to move to Auschwitz concentration camp to be the commander. The Camp was a concentration camp for Jews and had a long perimeter fence around it. Bruno is bored at his new home with nobody to play with, so during the day, he walks along this fence which runs far ahead to a place he cannot see. Inside the fence, he can see funny looking people who are always dressed in inmate uniform. Bruno does not know that those are uniforms for inmates and he thinks they are nice pajamas. While walking along the fence he meets a young boy, and they begin talking, soon their friendship grew, and they even realized they shared a birthday (Gray, 2014). Bruno thought he had found a really good friend and so he went on seeing him for about a week although he never let his parents know of his newly found friend. After some time in Auschwitz Bruno’s mother could not take it anymore mainly because she missed her old friends and that Auschwitz was very boring with little to do. She asked her kids to pack, but Bruno decided that he had to go and see his friend before he left. Coincidentally, Bruno had developed lice, and his head had been shaven to get rid of the lice. He looked like Shmuel and when he went to say goodbye his friend was really sad to lose his new found buddy. He asked Bruno to help him trace his father who he had not seen for some time. Additionally he had brought a pair of extra inmate uniform which Bruno wore. (Marcus, 2017) After sneaking into the camp through a small entrance in the fence, the two boys wandered off into the camp in search of his father. They were arrested while walking there and taken to a room which had no windows and the door was locked.
