Bruno is a nine year old kid and is also the main character in the story. In the begging of the story Bruno isn't excited to move to their new home. Bruno is mad because he can't play with his three best friends. In the story Bruno says " I don't want to leave."
Gretal is the second main character in the story. Gretal has lots of dolls and is also very bossy. Gretal will demand the maid/Maria to do things for her like run a bath. In the story Gretal says "Maria, go run me a bath."
Farther is not the nicest person. He is very strict and doesn't like poeple going in his office. Father works in a concentration camp that can be seen out side their house through their window. Father like to have dinners with the Fury, who is to be believed to be Hitler because he decribed with a tiny mustach and his wife is name is Eva. A quote by father was "The Fury has something he wants to discuss with me."
Shmuel is a jew from the concentration camp. He was found one day by Bruno when he had gone exploring. They like to talk alot and they found out the y have have the same exact birth days. We also found out that Pavel was his grampa that got killed by lieutenant kotler.
Lieutenant kotler worked at the concentration camp. When Pavel spilled the wine on Kotler we never heard about him again. I can infer that Kotler killed Pave because pavel spilled the wine on him. Kotler is alo not that nice to Bruno.
The Fury has only been introduced in the story twice. Both times he's have dinner with Bruno's family. I can infer that he is Hitler because he was decribed as to have a small mustache and his wife's name was Eva.
