This work was set in Berlin, 1942. When Bruno returns home from school one day, he discovers that his belongings are being packed in crates. His father has received a promotion and the family must move from their home to a new house far far away, where there is no one to play with and nothing to do. A tall fence running alongside stretches as far as the eye can see and cuts him off from the strange people he can see in the distance. But, Bruno longs to be an explorer and decides that there must be more to this desolate new place than what meets the eye. While exploring his new environment, he meets another boy whose life and circumstances are very different to his own, and their meeting results in a friendship that has devastating consequences. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.The Boy in the Striped Pajamas is now a major motion picture (releasing in November 2008).

Very solid book of the Holocaust from perspective of German and Jewish boys. Won't tell the ending but it is very emotional. Read for book report by 11 year old boy. Read morePublished 4 days ago by Creating Purpose, LLC
It devastated me. I couldn't stop but read till I finished it. Such a simple, yet powerful story. But it breaks my heart each time I take the name of the title!Published 5 days ago by Amazon Customer
Powerful and poignant. Highly recommend this read, reminiscent of The Book Thief. Provokes deep consideration of the Holocaust from a child's perspective.Published 8 days ago by Amazon Customer

How moving and one I will remember for a very long time. I plan to inquire teachers and see if this book has been used in their classrooms.Published 15 days ago by Jean M. Schwalbert
Excellent. I loved this book. I read it twice and have looked at the DVD (which I bought many years ago) more times than I can count. Read morePublished 16 days ago by Princess 47
