The innocence of childhood collides with the Holocaust in The Boy in the Striped Pajamas.
Bruno knows that his father is a soldier and that
they have to move to a new house in the country... a house near what he
thinks is a farm. But his father isn't just a soldier; he's a
high-ranking officer in Hitler's elite SS troops who's just been placed
in command of Auschwitz. As Bruno explores the woods around the house,
he discovers the concentration camp's perimeter fence. On the other side
sits a boy his own age, with whom Bruno strikes up a friendship--a
friendship that will have tragic consequences.-Amazon
