  • Hello, I'm Bruno.
  • I'm Shmuel.
  • In Berlin, Germany, 1942, Bruno comes home to find Maria packing his belongings.
  • CLIMAX
  • Bruno finds Mother in the dining room and asks Mother where they are going and why. Mother says that Father got a promotion and they are moving for his job. Bruno is devastated that he has to leave his three best friends for life.
  • FALLING ACTION
  • It's okay. We are getting out of the rain
  • Bruno, who has nothing to do, decides to explore outside. He followed the fence until he saw a boy sitting legs crossed on the ground. Bruno asks who he was and the boys says that his name is Shmuel.
  • RESOLUTION
  • Bruno finds out that Bruno, Gretel and Mother are moving back to Berlin tomorrow. The next day, Shmuel tells Bruno that his Papa is missing. Bruno decides to dress up like him and go find Shmuel's Papa.
  • Bruno and Shmuel look in one of the huts first. When they went in, soldiers came in and yelled. Bruno and Shmuel marched but they didn't know where they were going. Once it started to rain, they went into a warm room, which Bruno thought was to keep them out of the rain.
  • Bruno and Shmuel both held hands because they didn't know what was happening. Bruno, clueless, didn't know it was a gas chamber. Bruno and Shmuel were still holding hands, and Bruno's view went dark. A year later, Father and Mother found out what happened to Bruno.
  • Oh no! Bruno!
