  • Treasure Island
  • Auschwitz"Out-With"
  • Bruno, a nine-year-old boy living in Berlin, Germany in 1943, comes home one day to find his family’s maid, Maria, packing all of his things away. “The Fury,” as Bruno calls Adolf Hitler, had previously visited Bruno’s home, and promoted his Father to Commandant in the German army, which required the family to move to Poland whether he wanted to or not.
  • Bruno, a nine-year-old boy living in Berlin, Germany in 1943, comes home one day to find his family’s maid, Maria, packing all of his things away. “The Fury,” as Bruno calls Adolf Hitler, had previously visited Bruno’s home, and promoted his Father to Commandant in the German army, which required the family to move to Poland whether he wanted to or not.
  • As Bruno’s family moves into the new house in Auschwitz, Poland, he realises that it is the complete opposite of the house back in Berlin. The house is small and isolated, but Bruno does not know that he lives near a major concentration camp, and cannot properly pronounce the name of their new home, but calls it “Out-With”.
  • Through bruno’s window, the children could see that their property carried on to a large wire fence that extended further than they can see. As far as they could see, on the other side of the fence, were thousands of people living in small shelters, all wearing “striped pajamas.” The more Bruno looks, the more he wants to understand who they are.
  • After a few weeks of living in a lifeless house, Bruno decided to build a tire swing with the help of Pavel, ordered by the disliked Lieutenant Kotler. Pavel is the frail Jewish man who works in the family’s house and explains that he was a doctor before he was sent to the concentration camp, and he patches up Bruno’s knee when Bruno cuts it falling off a swing.
  • Everyday Herr Liszt, worked with Gretel and Bruno to improve their schooling. Giving lessons in history and geography, Herr Liszt tells them that Bruno’s father and his family are at ‘Out-With’ in order to correct the “great wrongs” that have been done to him. He believed that adventure story books were evil, and Bruno shouldn't read them.
  • Bruno goes against his mothers wishes and explores beyond the fenced backyard. He meets a boy who lives on the other side of the fence named Shmuel and begins to visit him daily. Shmuel wears the striped pajamas that Bruno has seen from his window, but struggles to understand exactly what life is like on Shmuel’s side of the fence.
