A powerfully affecting and unusual view of the Holocaust
3rd ESO has seen The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas, based on John Boyne's novel. This film shows the Holocaust through the uncomprehending eyes of a child – eight-year-old Bruno, whose Nazi officer father moves with his family to a new home near a concentration camp. Bruno perceives this as a farm, and befriends a Jewish boy Shmuel with devastating consequences.
