    Wonderful Novel, You Can¿t Miss It, It¿s Really Heart Breaking T

    Wonderful Novel, You Can’t Miss It, It’s Really Heart Breaking
    The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas It’s a very touching novel. An eight year old German named Bruno becomes friends with a Jewish concentration camp prisoner in World War 2. But Bruno has to be very careful with him visiting the prisoner because his dad It’s a high rank commander of the Nazi. Bruno it’s just like any other little boy that likes to play with friends and toys. He feels like his not going to find new friends when him and his family move in to the new house but at the end he ends up finding a special friend. The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas It’s a very great book to read to have an idea how cruel the Germans lived and treated the Jews back in World War 2. As you start reading the book it might be a bit boring but trust me once you get around the fourth chapter your not going to want stop reading not even for a second. Your going to start caring so much for Bruno that your going to be worrying about him, hoping he gets in no type of troubles. I believe the message of the author was to let people know that no matter what raise you are, you shouldn’t be treated any different.

    This aptly named movie shows a child's eye view of Hitler's Final Solution.

    The son of a German officer moves with his family to his father's new assignment. Little is told to him and his older sister and even their mother what the father's new job is.
    Like most young boys this son is adventurous and sneaks off his family property to explore. After a short time of exploring the woods he happens upon a fenced in compound. There is a boy about his age resting near the other side of the fence wearing his striped prisoner uniform.
    Being a boy he does what comes natural he talks with him thinking he has found a new friend. He continues to sneak off each day to meet his new found friend. He is not sure why he is in this compound or what the compound is. He thinks his father is involved with the compound in some way and that makes him very uncomfortable.
    One day he and his friend get caught doing something and he has the chance to defend his friend to keep him from trouble but he is afraid and to save himself he turns on his friend.
    He goes to their meeting place after and tells him he is sorry. He wants to make it up to his friend so he agrees to help him find someone in the compound. He tunnels under the fence and they go off searching the compound.
    At the same time his father and mother discover he is missing and they follow his trail to the fence and find the ditch he used to gain access to the compound.
    The parents fully knowing what the camp is are fearful for their son's life. The son knowing he must help his friend has gotten caught up in something more evil than he could possibly comprehend.
    We all want to be the good son helping a friend. So how did the world get so far from that idea? How much will it cost the son and how much has it cost us?
