Nowhere to sleep, little food and water. These people were treated and housed as slaves, and even slaves were treated better the how they Jews were treated in the Holocaust.

Argumentative Essay The Holocaust was a very terrifying and scary time for people in Germany, throughout Europe, and other places throughout the world. For example, “ By 1945, the Germans and their collaborators killed nearly two out of every three European jews…” (ushmm.org). For the most part jews were killed during this time, but others were killed also. It was a very important time in history. Bruno in the book The Boy in the Striped Pajamas was completely naive to this even though he was friends with a jew named Shmuel.
The analysis of the word “thoughtfully” indicates that Bruno is relating to his parents and teachers lessons and mimicking what they have taught.

Bruno has no clue that the people in the “striped pajamas” are being cruelly treated and murdered, and is jealous of what he thinks is freedom. Bruno once again reveals his innocence when he asks Pavel, the Jewish man from the camp who cleans him up after a fall, “If you’re a doctor, then why are you waiting on tables? Why aren’t you working at a hospital somewhere?” (83). It is a mystery to Bruno that a doctor would be reduced to such a state for no transparent reason, and his beliefs should be what all adults think.
