Gretel plays the role of Bruno's mean older sister. She is 12 years old but pretends to be much older, though she is actually very immature. She was too terrified to look out of Bruno's window without her dolls. She is very flirtatious and selfish, and is in love with one of her father's soliders! Gretel and her friends love nothing more than to torture Bruno.

Gretel is very immature for her age, and thinks she is older than she is.
Very smart, bilingual. Has to dumb things down for Bruno.
Lieutenant Kotler plays the role of one of father's two faced soliders who Gretel has a crush on. He is a teenager, but acts toward Jewish elders with uncomfortably cruel authority.
