The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas



Nota Final

The last book I read was The boy in the striped pyjamas.

The story is based on the best-selling novel written by John Boyne, who has sold thousands of copies in last months. It is set in Berlin in 1940s, and shows us the innocent view of an eight-years-old named Bruno, who has just moved with his family into an isolated house next to a strange place where all people wore the same clothes: striped pyjamas…

Without a doubt, the main target of the film is to show us a new point of view (children’s point) of the brutality of the holocaust and, somehow, teach us that deep down people are alike, no matter what races or cultures.

I particularly like Nazis’ films, but I would like to recommend it even to people who are not keen on this kind of films, because it is really a special and moving one.

This work was set in Berlin, 1942. When Bruno returns home from school one day, he discovers that his belongings are being packed in crates. His father has received a promotion and the family must move from their home to a new house far far away, where there is no one to play with and nothing to do. A tall fence running alongside stretches as far as the eye can see and cuts him off from the strange people he can see in the distance. But, Bruno longs to be an explorer and decides that there must be more to this desolate new place than what meets the eye. While exploring his new environment, he meets another boy whose life and circumstances are very different to his own, and their meeting results in a friendship that has devastating consequences.
