Nine year old Bruno is upset to learn that his family must leave their comfort. able home in Berlin The man whom the boy calls the Fury Fuhrer sends Bruno s father. a Nazi officer to Out With Auschwitz to be the new commandant Bruno hates his. cold nasty new house As he looks out of his bedroom window he sees people in striped. pajamas who appear to live in huts on the other side of a barbed wire fence Bruno soon. discovers that these people are treated cruelly by the soldiers such as the sadistic. Lieutenant Kotler on whom Bruno s sister Gretel develops a crush. One of the people from the other side of the fence is Pavel who prepares the. vegetables and waits on the family After Bruno falls off a tire swing Pavel rescues the. boy and administers medical aid Bruno then finds out that Pavel is a doctor and wonders. why he is now acting as a servant He also wonders why his mother takes the credit for. helping him, Bruno is confused about his father s job He thinks the Commandant looks very. smart in his uniform and is proud when Maria the maid relates the kind things the man. has done for her family However Bruno also knows that his grandmother was very angry. about her son s new job and the two had a terrible fight The boy questions why his. father fails to stop Lieutenant Kotler from brutally punishing Pavel for spilling wine. One day Bruno goes exploring along the fence and notices a boy on the other. side Bruno and the boy Shmuel quickly form a friendship Although Shmuel tries to. describe the brutal conditions in the camp naive Bruno cannot understand why people in. striped pajamas are living on the other side of the fence Even when his sister Gretel ulti. mately explains that they are Jews and should be hated he still fails to comprehend All. he knows is that he is pleased with his new friend and he continues to visit Shmuel. One day Bruno is surprised to find Shmuel in his kitchen polishing glasses. Shmuel explains that Lieutenant Kotler brought him to do the job because of his tiny. fingers Bruno then notices just how thin his friend s hands are and offers the starving. boy some chicken Although Shmuel is afraid to eat it he finally relents Unfortunately. Kotler appears and accuses him of stealing food When the boy explains that his friend. Bruno gave it to him a frightened Bruno refutes this As a result Kotler later punishes. Shmuel who ultimately forgives the contrite Bruno The boys no longer have to worry. about Kotler when he is transferred for getting too close to the Commandant s wife. After Bruno s mother convinces her husband to allow her and the children to. return to Berlin Bruno promises to help Shmuel locate his missing father before he. leaves As a disguise Bruno dons a striped outfit that Shmuel gets for him With his head. shaved due to lice Bruno looks like an inmate and crawls under the fence As he tries to. help Shmuel find his father Bruno is appalled by all he sees When the boys finally give. up their search Bruno wants nothing more than to return home But before he can. leave he and Shmuel get caught in a march to the gas chamber Bruno dies holding his. friend s hand,LEARNING LINKS INC 1,THE BOY IN THE STRIPED PAJAMAS. BACKGROUND INFORMATION,The Holocaust, When World War I ended in 1919 the Treaty of Versailles stripped Germany of. its pride and economic stability This was a time of high unemployment and economic. chaos in Germany conditions that were ripe for Adolph Hitler and his National Socialist. German Worker s Party the Nazi Party to rise to power. Using the Jews as a scapegoat Hitler roused the German people with a viciously. anti Semitic program and a plan to build a superior German master race From the. time he became the absolute dictator of Germany Hitler carried out a methodical perse. cution of the Jewish people His final solution to the Jewish question was extermination. in death camps also known as concentration camps This sad time in history is referred. to as the Holocaust During the period that Hitler was in power 1933 1945 six million. of Europe s nine million Jews were murdered by the Nazis. Terrorism against Jews was carried out by the SS ruthless police units of the. Nazi Party Jews were forced to wear the Star of David so they could be easily identified. Special units began mass shootings that claimed about two million lives but these were. too slow to suit the Nazis After putting up with horrible conditions in ghettos such as. the Krak w ghetto in Poland Jews were finally crowded into freight cars and transported. to concentration camps One of the most notorious of these was Auschwitz which was. both a death and labor camp with a small percentage of the people kept alive as slave. labor At Auschwitz 2 000 people at a time could be killed in the large gas chambers and. almost 5 000 bodies could be burned in the oven in one day. On June 6 1944 Allied forces landed in Normandy France in the D day. invasion Slowly the concentration camps were liberated The Soviet troops liberated. Auschwitz on January 27 1945 By that time an estimated two million persons includ. ing one and a half million Jews had been murdered there.
