Storyboard Text

  • Bruno
  • "What's going on, Mama?"
  • He is angry, from Gretel's friends.
  • He is short.
  • He is confused, with the new house.
  • His emotion is annoyed, because he doesn't know whats going on and wants to know.
  • Gretel
  • "Well yes, it is horrible."
  • She has dolls...
  • She is inmature for her age.
  • She is scared.
  • She clenched onto her doll, who was pressed against her chest.
  • "Not now, Bruno."
  • He has the freshly-pressed uniform on.
  • Father
  • He is serious, like he is in the book.
  • Inside he is stern and strict.
  • He is sitting at his desk in his office.
  • Bruno is a confused young boy, presumably a Christian, living in a great, five story house. But when his Father's job makes them move...He faces a big change, with his annoying older sister, Gretel. The house is small and old and has an eerie view for Bruno. He is usually mad and/or annoyed because he wants answers and doesn't know what's going on. Later in the story he makes a friend named Shmuel,  a Jew in the concentration camp Auschwitz. They talk to eachother and have the same differences as similarities. He has to lie to Gretel about him and call him his imaginary friend.
  • Lieudendant Kotler
  • He stays in orderly fashion and waits for Herr Commandant's orders.
  • He is also in his uniform.
  • Gretel is a 12-year-old girl that lives in the family; The older sister of Bruno. She is sassy, and has an obsession with Lieutendant Kotler.  She loves dolls, and has many collections of them. She doesn't have a clear understanding of why the family moved(similar to Bruno's thinking). She is scared and confused most of the time and treats Maria, the maid, poorly. She thinks she is top notch, with her sarcasm. She abuses Bruno with it, and when Bruno has slipped something out he shouldn't of, Gretel uses her sarcasm like crazy, tormenting him. 
  • Shmuel
  • Shmuel is sad.
  • Shmuel is timid.
  • Father is a stern Commandmant for (presumably) the Nazi army. He is usually calm, but can fire up at any second. He doesn't really have a clear understanding of Bruno's feelings. He usually invites "The Fury" Over for dinner, for some kind of meeting. He likes to stay in his office most of the time or go to a Concentration Camp. He most likely works at a Concentration Camp as one of the soldiers. 
  • Lieutendant Kotler is a Nazi guard that works for Bruno's father, therefore he always is coming in to Bruno's new house. He doesn't like Bruno more than Gretel and tends to make hurtful remarks towards Bruno. He hates Jews, like done to Pavel and Shmuel. We can most likely assume that he killed Pavel, beating him to death. Pavel was weak and old anyway, so it would make him more susceptible to it.
  • "I wasn't really close with my Father."
  • He is nervous, about talking to about his Father to the Commandant.
  • Gretel is hanging out with him.
  • Shmuel is on the other side of the fence, in the concentration camp.
  • "We don't play," said Shmuel.
  • He is in his striped(I tried) pajamas.
