He is also nice, he gave Shmuel food because he saw how skinny he was. Bruno is also smart, he figured out how to get over the fence, and covered up the fact that he was seeing Shmuel. Bruno is also sheltered and naive, he has a maid, people cooking for him and doing things for him, he didn’t even know where Poland was.

Lieutenant Kotler grew very angry with Pavel and no one - not Bruno, not Gretl, not Mother and not even Father - stepped in to stop him doing what he did next, even though none of them could watch.
