I can't find anything funny about what makes this book so bad; it's just plain offensive and shallow. I generally have turned to listening to audiobooks and I hate it when they put music to it. I am not going to bothe Thank you so much for your review. I am not going to bother with this book. Out With is strange. Aus-Wisch is the translation used in the German edition.

See a Problem?

I have a hard time thinking a well-read 9 year old would make that kind of mistake. This book is so ignorant of historical facts about concentration camps that it kicks the history of the Holocaust right in the teeth.

John Boyne's premise is that the nine-year old son of the commandant of Auschwitz, bored with his isolated life, takes walks to the fence s "The Boy in the Striped Pajamas" would easily top my list of "Worst Books about the Holocaust. John Boyne's premise is that the nine-year old son of the commandant of Auschwitz, bored with his isolated life, takes walks to the fence surrounding this infamous camp and meets there a nine-year old inmate who is on the other side of the fence.

The two boys become friends and continue meeting on a daily basis.

Here is some news for Mr. The ft high barbed wire fence surrounding each camp was electrified.

Touch if once and you are fried. There was a no-man's land on each side of the fence; along the inside perimeter of the fence were guard towers; each tower was manned by an armed guard around the clock; each guard was responsible for one segment of the fence within his vision; it was his duty to prevent anyone from approaching the fence, either from the inside, or from the outside; he was under orders to shoot anyone he saw approaching the no-man's-land. Let me add this.

A nine-year-old boy arriving in Auschwitz-Birkenau on a cattle train would take only a single walk in this camp: from the train to the gas chamber.

It is a fantasy that does untold damage to the cause of truth about the Holocaust. This book has only one purpose: to make a lot of money for the author and the publisher.

And this purpose it accomplishes. The publisher recently proudly trumpeted in an ad in the New York Times: over one-million copies sold and still going strong.

And that's not even counting the profits from the revolting movie based on this book. Bruno continues to be ignorant about the conditions on Schmuel's side of the fence. After a year, Bruno's unhappy mother convinces her husband to let her and the children move back to Berlin.

Bruno breaks the news of his imminent departure to Schmuel.

They make a plan for Schmuel to bring a set of "pyjamas" to their next meeting, so that Bruno can put them on and slip under the fence, to help Schmuel look for Schmuel's missing father, as an adventure to mark their last day together. While Bruno is in the camp with Schmuel, many of the prisoners are rounded up, including Bruno and Schmuel, and are herded into a long, air tight room. Presumably, they are gassed to death.

Bruno and Schmuel hold hands in the gas chamber, to the last.

Bruno's father figures out what happened and becomes a broken man. When the Nazis are defeated, he goes willingly as a POW.

The story is shocking in its ending, all the more so because of the innocence of Bruno as he narrates his experience. The author does not pretty up the story, despite the fact that this is a children's book. Bruno's father is presented as a complex man, one who was a patient father, and who was kind to the maid, Maria, in paying for her mother's hospital and funeral expenses, and then taking her in as a maid when she had nowhere else to turn. Yet, he has ambitions to rise in the Nazi party.

The mother, similarly, is loving towards her children, but she drinks heavily and has an affair with a young soldier. Verdict: Horrifying depiction of Auschwitz told from the standpoint of the innocent 9 year old son of a high ranking Nazi officer.

Like s someone13 Jan 26, The book was actually pretty good and very interesting, but it was a little bit confusing. Otherwise a good book on ww2.


Like r Richdakid Mar 28, This book is about a nine year old boy that goes on a journey to a concentration camp during ww2 I felt really good reading this book because I got to learn alot about Nazi and what they wore some specific things in this book I do recommend this book to 13 and up kids Like a Ali Mar 14, The Boy In The Striped is written in a strange way where it's narrated from a nine year old boys perspective; however in the end this works out really well as it gives you something to think about, such as when Bruno pronounces 'Fuhrer' as 'Fury, or 'Auschwitz' as 'Out-With'.

This makes the story alot more emotional to read, as it takes a very serious point in history and mixes it with a nine year old boy's naivety. Even though the book isn't non-fiction, many things in the story also relate to real life; such as the location of the camp, how it was laid out, etc.
