Summary

A German boy befriends a Jew in a concentration camp, without realising the significance of the facility

When his father is promoted Bruno moves to a place far away with a tall fence and his curiosity leads him to a tragic friendship with a child from the other side of the fence.

The story of "The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas" is very difficult to describe. Usually we give some clues about the book on the jacket, but in this case we think that would spoil the reading of the book. We think it is important that you start to read without knowing what it is about.

If you do start to read this book, you will go on a journey with a nine-year-old boy called Bruno. (Though this isn't a book for nine-year-olds.) And sooner or later you will arrive with Bruno at a fence.

Fences like this exist all over the world. We hope you never have to encounter such a fence.
