The Boy in the Sttriped Pyjamas tells the story of a family that lives in Berlin, Germany. The principal character is Bruno, a 9-year-0ld boy who has a rich family because of his father, who is a Nazi soldier who has a really good reputation. The father is sent to Auschwitz, a concentration camp which is a little far from their house. All the family have to move to Auschwitz and Bruno and his sister Gretel aren't very happy with the idea of moving there.
There, in Auschwitz, Bruno and Gretel are bored and one day they see some boys in striped uniforms. Bruno is very interested in them and one day he goes near the fence and talks to a boy with that strange striped uniform. He told Bruno that he's called Shmuel. They become friends and... what happens next you'll know if yu read the book.
It's a really moving book. I watched the film also when I was 10 or 11 and I almost cried. I recommend it to everyone.
