Bruno is outside and he is playing with his friends, before he comes in and finds out that he is going to move from Berlin to Auswitch. He gets very mad because he dosent want to move from his friends.
We are moving to Auswitch either you like it or not.
But I dont want to!
This is Brunos family, they are rich and have a big house and a car, and that was rare in that time. The father to Bruno is a nazi, he workes in the army of Germany and his mother is a home mom, she is home and keeps the house clean.
Bruno is a boy you can trust and say anything to, he is very kind and likes to talk to everyone.
Im Bruno and I am 9 years old.
I am his father, Ralf
I am his sister, Gretel.
I am his mother, Elsa.
When they arrive, they come to a big old boring house
How long do we have to be here?
Till my job is done, son.
This is Shmuel. He lives in a consentrationcamp because he is a jew. He gets treated like hes nothing every day, he is starwing every day because he dont get to eat so much food that Bruno does.
His father is also in the camp but they dont see each other that much.
Im Shmuel, im 9 years old and if I dont do what im told I get punched or I may get killed.
Shmuel is a boy who is loyal, friendly and kind.
In the consentrationcamp there are many other Jews and many soliders, they get told that when they are finished with the work, they will be relased, and can go home again.
The way the jews chame here is a horrible way to do : The nazi soldiers came to him and his familys house and forced them out and on a train that goes to Auswitch and they dont know that that is a concentration camp, so when they come on the train Shmuel says "There were too many of us in the carriages for one thing and there was no air to breathe" on the way to Auschwitz his mother has been "taken away," and they never saw her again.
