  1. The Boy In the Striped PajamasFilm Study By Kristen Watson

  2. Young Bruno lives a wealthy lifestyle in prewar Germany along with his mother, elder sister , Gretel and SS Commandant father, ralph. The family relocates to the countryside where his father is assigned to take command a prison camp (Auschwitz). A few days later, Bruno befriends another youth, strangely dressed in striped pajamas, named Shmuel who lives behind an electrified fence. Bruno will soon find out that he is not permitted to befriend his new friend as he is a Jew, and that the neighboring yard is actually a prison camp for Jews awaiting extermination. Synopsis

  3. Childhood is measured out by the sounds and smells and sights, before the dark hour of reason groups -John Betjeman

  4. Economic Comparisons

  5. Bruno VsShmuel Shmuel Bruno • Bruno lived in a stately house with 5 floors • Bruno had never felt hunger, because his parents could afford food. • Shmeul lived in an apartment above his father’s watch store • Shmuel is starved in the internment camp

  6. Arrival to Auschwitz Shmuel Bruno

  7. “He is a watchmaker, but now most of the time he just mends boots” -Shmuel Shmuel’s Dad

  8. Zzz Time Comparions Shmuel Bruno • Sleeps alone • Clean bed • Own room • Sleeps with several others • Dirty clothes, dirty blankets • Shares a room with hundreds of people

  9. “They are not pajamas. They took all of our clothes away.” -Shmuel

  10. Inaccurate

  11. “The aim of the Jew is to become the ruler of humanity. The Jew is not creative but destructive. He is the enemy of culture. Thousands of Germans have been made poor by the Jew.” -Gretel (reading from a book)

  12. Social Comparisons

  13. Inaccuracy Bruno and those around him on the “greener” side of the fence are suppose to be German… Yet they have British accents in the movie. Shmuel would not have been German, but spoken a form of a Yiddish dilect or polish.

  14. Inaccuracy The relationship Bruno and Shmuel have is very inaccurate considering children sent to camps were almost immediately killed as they were not strong enough for such intensive labor.

  15. Soldiers How Shmuel Saw them How Bruno saw them

  16. Treatment How Shmuel Was Treated How Bruno’s Family Was Treated

  17. Huh? Poland? Poland must be very far from Germany Good try Bruno! ;)

  18. “You and I are suppose to be enemies. Did you know that?”

  19. What to choose?

  20. Even a sandwich can be inaccurate

  21. Religious Ideology Comparisons

  22. Gretel (reading from a book)“The Jew slandered us and incited our enemies. The Jew corrupted us through bad books. He mocked our literature and our music. Everywhere his influence was destructive, the eventual result of which was our nation’s collapse.”

  23. “They smell even worse when they burn, don’t they?”

  24. The Fence Shmuel: “It is to stop people from getting out!’ Bruno: “Why what have you done?” Shmuel: “I am a Jew”

  25. Degenerate


  27. “I saw a film about the camp and it looked so nice!” • -Bruno

  28. Political Comparisons

  29. Inaccuracy Sneaking into a concentration camp would be next to impossible as the camps were heavily guarded

  30. In the book Bruno has never heard the word Jew before. In the movie the director presents him to completely unaware of what has happened in Berlin… The CAPITAL of Nazi Germany. German Boy Knowing Nothing about Germany? Tee heenot that Bruno…

  31. He would have seen This.. Means for Aryans only

  32. And this… Jews being denied streetcar access

  33. And these The 1938 Kristallnachtor “Night of Broken Glass”

  34. Yay Hitler?

  35. In the Movies and in Reality Reality Movie

  36. Propaganda Reality Movie

  37. Out with? No Auschwitz! No th sound in the German Language

  38. Accuracy/ Inaccuracy of Clothing Lieutenant Commandant

  39. What it should have been Lieutenant Commandant

  40. Underlining Reason for the Inaccuracy The film as is the book are meant to be a fable. Telling the holocaust perspective from a point of innocence. Childhood symbolizes this. This is why John Boyne chose to see the holocaust through both Bruno and Shmuel’s eyes.
