Shmuel ,Bruno ,Pavel ,Ralf, and Elsa are all chacters in The Boy In the Striped Pajamas. The setting is in Germany, but later on you find out it's by a camp called, "Auschwitz." The plot is that Bruno, and Shmuel begin a forbidden friendship.
The main conflict is that Bruno lives next to a death camp and befriends a jew, a captured jew, a child. This childs name is Shmuel, he is bald and has a scar near his left eye. Bruno doesn't know that his father is killing all the jews in Auschwitz, and putting them to die in a chamber that is filled with gas, in which later Bruno and Shmuel meet their demise.
During the rising action a curious Bruno "escapes" from his house and finds the camp Auschwitz, which hold's his future best friend. He meets Shmuel and easily befreinds him. No one knows that Bruno sneaks out daily just to meet his best freind.
During the climax Bruno finds a way to dig under the fence. He is given a blue uniform and a hat to blend in. While he is slipping under the fence no one points him out or even notices him.
After Bruno got under the fence Shmuel and Bruno start to look for Shmuel's dad. They go into a "cabin" and start looking around for any signs of Shmuel's father. While in this "cabin," Nazis come and take everyone in that cabin to "take a shower."
While Bruno's parents were franticially looking for him, his dad relized where he was, and so did his mom. They were all too late, the mom wept outside of the fence where he had slipped under. The boys and everyone else who was in the cabin was put into a gas chamber, not a warsh room.
