  • Brunos' father gets promoted to commandant in a concentration camp
  • hehehe 
  • O do I have a job for you
  • Brunos' dad decided to move his family to Auschwitz
  • I KNOW!! 
  • But I'm not gonna be the one to tell Bruno
  • Bruno and Shmuel meet
  • Hiiii 
  • Bruno is a 9-year-old boy growing up during World War II in Berlin. He lives with his parents, his 12-year-old sister Gretel and maids, one of whom is called Maria. After a visit by Adolf Hitler, Bruno's father is promoted to Commandant, and the family has to move to "Out-With" because of the orders of "The Fury"
  • Bruno and Shmuel continue to hangout.
  • Thanks for the food 
  • Here is some food
  • Because of the promotion, Brunos' dad had to move him and his family to Auschwitz. Bruno won't be happy.
  • Bruno tries to help
  • Sure 
  • Lets look for your dad
  • he meets a Jewish boy named Shmuel, who he learns shares his birthday. Shmuel says that his father, grandfather, and brother are with him on this side of the fence, but he is separated from his mother. Bruno and Shmuel talk and become very good friends, although Bruno still does not understand very much about Shmuel and his side of the fence.
  • Bruno and Shmuel die
  • Nearly every day, unless it's raining, Bruno goes to see Shmuel and sneaks him food. As the meetings go on, and Shmuel gets more and more skinny, Bruno's naïveté is proved, as he never realizes he is living beside a concentration camp.
  • Bruno concocts a plan with Shmuel to sneak into the camp to look for Shmuel's father. Shmuel brings a set of prison clothes (which look to Bruno like striped pyjamas), and Bruno leaves his own clothes outside the fence.
  •  As they search the camp, both children are rounded up along with a group of prisoners on a "march". They are forced to remove their clothing and are led into a gas chamber. In the gas chamber, Bruno apologizes to Shmuel for not finding his father and tells Shmuel that he is Bruno's best friend for life. As soon as the door is closed, the lights go out and all is chaos. However, Bruno is determined that even in chaos, he will never let go of Shmuel's hand.
