Storyboard Text

  • Both boys were forced to move from their beloved homes: Bruno from his home in Berlin when his father got a new position in the Nazi regime as Commandant of Auschwitz; Shmuel from his home in Poland when he was taken as a prisoner of war and put in a concentration camp.
  • April 1937
  • Bruno lives in relative opulence, with maids and servants. Shmuel lives in an overrun, filthy barrack overseen by cruel and vicious guards.
  • Both boys were born on April 15th, 1934, to loving parents.
  • Bruno was born in Nazi-ruled Germany to parents on the "right" side of Hitler's regime. Shmuel was born in Poland to Jewish parents.
  • Both boys are educated: Bruno has a private tutor who teaches him what the Nazi party deems appropriate; Shmuel is schooled and his mother teaches him foreign languages, as she herself was a teacher.
  • Bruno is completely ignorant with regards to the goings-on at the concentration camp at which he resides. Shmuel is keenly aware of the abuses, including starvation, beatings and murders.
