John Boyne said at one point “If you ask me, were all in the same boat. And it’s leaking.” The Holocaust and WWII are known as one of the worst times in World History. All through, “Boy in Striped Pajamas”, Boyne uses narrative techniques and goals to make the story more and more intense, and this really represents the seriousness of the Holocaust. In this story, Bruno is the main character and he goes through a big change right in the beginning, he moves and then goes to a completely remote area where there’s no one except old people.
Back then there were walls that divided countries, families, and friends. Because of walls, many authors write about the lifestyle of living there. Author John Boyne and Jennifer A. Nielsen both wrote books surrounding different walls. In Boyne’s The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, it takes place when the Jews had no right to do anything because of their religion.
John Boyne originally had the idea of two boys at a fence communicating back and forth to one another. WIth this idea, he took it into the era in which it was written -- the concentration camps, the brutality, the story-telling between the two boys is what he envisioned. He had this thought of the two boys coming back each and every day to ask more questions, to investigate about what was on each side of the fence. This idea was expressed clearly and greatly in the Boy in the Striped Pajamas. Bruno is a naive young boy who is always wanting to explore and find new things to enjoy, with his friends of course.
The Boy in the Striped Pajamas is around a nine-year-old kid, at the same time, as Boyne focuses out on the back front of my version, it 's not precisely for nine-year-olds. Youthful Bruno 's family is being removed from Berlin in view of his dad 's baffling work, which upsets Bruno and even the Hopeless Case herself, his more seasoned sister Gretel. However, their new, segregated home offers one shock; an interesting, fenced-in complex loaded with individuals. Bruno, an adventurer on the most fundamental level, embarks to investigate this complex and meets Shmuel, a young man behind the wall. Through the span of a year, the two young men develop close—yet Bruno can 't exactly make sense of why Shmuel can never take off.
Boy in Stripped Pyjamas The boy in the stripped pyjamas by John Boyne details the life of a 8 year old Bruno and his German family during the time of the second world war Boyne alters the story’s narration to a third person limited view to somewhat conform Bruno’s perspectives of his surroundings which often includes childish opinions and lack of common sense. Much of the story follows Bruno’s internal struggles as his life changes drastically Bruno goes from a time living in a luxurious home in berlin, without a care in the world, playing with friends and being a child to living in an unpleasant home on a disturbing death camp due to his fathers promotion in a high ranking Military official in Hitler’s arm force. Bruno is constantly curious
There are ones to rely on, who will have people’s backs through thick and thin, and display humanity in every step. The dictionary states, “Humanity is the quality or condition of being human or humane” (“Humanity”). This means people are humans because of the way they react to certain situations. For instance, humans have feelings and characteristics such as compassion, sympathy, consideration, and kindness. People’s feelings toward others mark them apart from all other animals.
Bruno and Schmell are looking for Schmell's Pa and get caught up with other Jewish people and go into one of the buildings and the Army men come in to one of the chambers and where they think they are going to get a shower, but in reality they are going to get gassed. The father and the mother are looking for Bruno and as the door closes they run up and realize where he is and what is happening. They both begin to cry and the father stands there in shock and don't know what to do. The mother and sister hold each other in comfort.
“Shmuel may well have opened his mouth to say something back, but Bruno never heard it… as the door at the front was suddenly closed and a loud metallic sound rang through from the outside” (Boyne 213). The Holocaust was a tragic event that happened all throughout Europe from 1933-1945. The Nazi’s would take Jews or any other person who could potentially hurt them and hold them captive. There were concentration camps that held these people. They were forced to work long hard days with little food and water.
