Bruno's older sister tells him that the place is called Out With. Although the movie has some minor differences, it generally stays true to the plot of the book. I just wish Boyne had done a better job with Bruno's voice. Pavel sets Bruno up and soon the kid's happily swinging—well, until he falls. And Bruno could really use some company.
A tall fence stretches as far as the eye can see and cuts him off from the strange people in the distance. While written with teens in mind, this is certainly a book worthy of adult readers. Bruno tells Gretel that the other children look unfriendly. But the grandmother is very against Nazism and hates what her son does. In doing so, they can explore themes involving the danger of naïvety during warfare. One day he has an epiphany, retraces Bruno's steps, and realizes with horror what happened to his son.
When his family moves from their home in Berlin to a strange new house in Poland, young Bruno befriends Shmuel, a boy who lives on the other side of the fence where everyone seems to be wearing striped pajamas. Students can explore how Bruno differs from other members of his family and then compare his sense of isolation from them to the bond he forms with Shmuel. It allows for more diversity amongst society and makes our everyday lives a little bit more interesting. By focusing on Bruno's innocent and puzzled view of his father's job, Boyne offers a previously unseen perspective on the everyday Germans who took part in the Nazis' ultimate solution. But Bruno longs to be an explorer and decides that there must be more to this desolate new place than meets the eye. His father has received a promotion and the family must move from their home to a new house far far away, where there is no one to play with and nothing to do.
But, since he plans on becoming an explorer when he grows up, he decides to Go Exploring wearing an old overcoat and boots, such as an explorer might wear. We can already guess at the ending by cues in the weather shown in the movie. However, as it turns out, Shmuel has bigger fish to fry: His dad's gone missing. Plus, Bruno and Gretel think Out-With is the name of their house—not the concentration camp that lies on the other side of the fence. The boys hatch a plan for Bruno to dress up in pajamas and help Shmuel find his dad before he leaves Auschwitz on Saturday. His writing is very simple and easy to understand, however, he includes secret messages and hints that are hidden behind his simplified terms in which makes it very unique. Each parent represents a completely different attitude prominent in the Holocaust era—his father, recently promoted to Nazi Commandant and fully committed to the party, and his mother, a guilty observer who demonstrates humanity's capacity for denial.
He meets a boy who lives on the other side of the fence named Shmuel. One thing that the audience should be aware of is how much he emphasises on discrimination. Shmuel explains what happened to him and his family before coming to the camp. Afterward, Bruno heard his parents arguing about the move, which his mother was totally against. This book is startling, horrifying, and yet the story is told in a charming way. Why, make a tire swing, of course. Bruno is sad to be away from Berlin, and bored to have only his twelve-year-old sister Gretel, whom he does not get along with, for company.
But Bruno longs to be an explorer and decides that there must be more to this desolate new place than meets the eye. But Bruno longs to be an explorer and decides that there must be more to this desolate new place than meets the eye. Unfortunately, though, they don't find Shmuel's father. Bruno desperately misses the hustle and bustle of Berlin, in particular the shops with fruits and vegetables, as well as his three best friends Karl, Daniel, and Martin.

But, we see how this state of ignorance changes over the course of the movie. The last chapter shows how the family deals with Bruno's disappearance: His mother and Gretel eventually go back to Berlin, but his father stays in Auschwitz. Their servants are tight-lipped and nervous, and Bruno's mother tries to explain that this is not only a promotion for his father, it's his duty. He changes into his striped pajamas, leaves his things on his side and crawls under the fence. We see this in the classes Gretel and Bruno have to go to. These contrasting realities show us how our origins can mark and condemn us for life. During his exploration session, Bruno comes upon a boy sitting on the ground in pajamas and an armband featuring the Star of David.
He is surrounded by his father's soldiers, including one particularly menacing lieutenant named Kotler, and there's a cook who also appears to be a doctor, much to Bruno's puzzlement. He asks Maria what she thinks of the move, and she says it is not her place to criticize the new house. I have a nephew the same age: trust me, he is inquisitive. In essence, he is transmitting the he sees as correct to the children. Maybe because this story is told from an oblivious nine-years old boy.

He consents, though he himself will remain at Out-With due to obligations to his job and the Fury. Encourage your students to examine Bruno's choices and fate symbolically—what bigger idea about war and ethics does his story convey? When they part ways, they plan to meet again tomorrow. Shmuel is from Poland and informs the oblivious Bruno that they're in Poland and not in Germany like Bruno's been thinking. Bruno visits Shmuel to tell him the news, but learns that Shmuel's father is missing. Because Boyne is good at making things simple to understand, I think I would recommend this book to middle school kids.
