Add on Goodreads

Bruno is upset when his family moves from their cozy house in Berlin to the country for his father’s work as a soldier. But things start looking up when Bruno spies a farm near his new house, and meets a boy wearing striped pajamas on the other side of the fence who becomes his new playmate.

This book contains:

• Reference to adults using bad words
• Violence (deaths, starving people, beating a man, Jews in a concentration camp, and the smell of burning bodies)
• Emotionally disturbing scenes

The Boy in the Striped Pajamas paints a subtly simple, vidid picture of the horrible acts of brutality of WWII. The message, characters, and story about the Holocaust are all extraordinarily powerful.
