The endearing character of Bruno, is just a nine-year-old boy, who knows nothing of the Final Solution and the Holocaust.


He is oblivious to all of the appalling cruelties which are being afflicted on the people of Europe. By his Country. And all he knows is that he has moved from Berlin, away from his friends, and his regular life. To a desolated area where he has no one to play with anymore.


Until he meets Shmuel…


Shmuel is living on the other side of the neighbouring wired fence, in his own strange parallel existence. Where everyone is forced to wear a uniform of white and blue striped pyjamas. But despite this wired fence which separates them both, the two of them become the best of friends. But as they grow closer, Bruno begins to learn the realistic and terrible truth that lies beyond this fence, and what life is actually like for his best friend...


This classic and highly loved novel of A Boy In The Striped Pyjamas by John Boyne, reflects on the friendship and loss of innocence, which is represented through the characters of Bruno and Shmuel, during one of the worst points in history.
