    I hardly know where to begin bashing this book Do I start with the 9 year old boy and his 12 year old sister, who read about 6 and 8, respectively The imperial measurements miles, feet despite the German setting The German boy, raised in Berlin, who thinks that Der F hrer is The Fury and Auschwitz is Out With, despite being corrected several times and seeing it written down The other English language idioms and mis hearings, despite our being told that he speaks only German And that he believes that Heil Hitler is a fancy word for hello, because he understands neither Heil nor Hitler So maybe these are fussy issues, and I shouldn t trash the book on these minor linguistic flaws Instead, I can start with the plot holes big enough to drive a truck through that Bruno, whose father is a high ranking official in The Fury s regime, doesn t know what a Jew is, or that he s living next door to a concentration camp Or that the people wearing the striped pajamas are being killed, and THAT s why they don t get up after the soldiers stand close to them and there are sounds like gunshots Or that there s a section of fence that is a unpatrolled and b can be lifted from the ground high enough to pass food and, eventually, a small boy through, AND that nobody would try to get OUT through this hole Or that Bruno s ...

    The Boy in the Striped Pajamas would easily top my list of Worst Books about the Holocaust I am writing as one who was there I was once myself a boy in striped pajamas and am a survivor of six German concentration camps This book is so ignorant of historical facts about concentration camps that it kicks the history of the Holocaust right in the teeth.John Boyne s premise is that the nine year old son of the commandant of Auschwitz, bored with his isolated life, takes walks to the fence surrounding this infamous camp and meets there a nine year old inmate who is on the other side of the fence The two boys become friends and continue meeting on a daily basis Here is some news for Mr Boyne The 10 ft high barbed wire fence surrounding each camp was electrified Touch if once and you are fried There was a no man s land on each side of the fence along the inside perimeter of the fence were guard towers each tower was manned by an armed guard around the clock each guard was responsible for one segment of the fence within his vision it was his duty to prevent anyone from approaching the fence, either from the inside, or from the outside he was under orders to shoot anyone he saw approaching the no man s land.In addition, along the outside perimeter, prominent signs proclaimed, STOP Danger High Voltage Electricity So that even a dense nine year old would get the message, a skull and cross bones were pictured at the top of each...

    As Michael Kors once sighed to a clueless designer on Project Runway Where do I start Let s open with some descriptive words that sum up this book, and I will then go on to explain them in further detail Patronizing Insipid Smarmy Just plain bad Patronizing I believe that to write good children s literature, you have to think that children are intelligent, capable human beings who are worth writing for like Stephen King, who probably thinks kids are smarter than adults The author of The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, on the other hand, clearly thinks that children are idiots The main character, Bruno, is supposed to be nine years old, but compared to him Danny Torrance of The Shining who was six looks like a Mensa member There s childlike naivety, and then there s Bruno, who is so stunningly unobservant and unperceptive that I actually started to wonder if he was supposed to be mentally deficient somehow And he s not the only child who receives Boyne s withering scorn and condescension Take this scene between Bruno and his sister Gretel, when they ve just moved to th...

    I seriously suggest you read about what happened to real children in the Holocaust It won t fill your thoughts for many days or shock you rather it will fill your LIFE and make you feel sick to the core of your being.Paul Friedlander, himself a survivor, recounts in his recent highly praised book the incident of 90 Jewish infants all under the age of five, orphaned after their parents were murdered in a mass shooting.These children were subjected to indescribable mistreatment for days.Then they were individually hanged.I read this with horror, revulsion and total disbelief ref.The Years of Extermination Nazi Germany and the Jews, 1939 1945 Or the incident of the young German soldier participating in the evacuation of the patients in the hospital in the Warsaw Ghetto In the presence of a distraught Jewish crowd of relatives and onlookers, patients were being thrown onto the backs of trucks.The babies were being thrown from the upper windows The soldier requested and was given permission to catch the falling babies on his bayonet ref The Holocaust the Jewish Tragedy by Martin Gilbert.ISBN 0 00 637194 9 There are so many historical inaccuracies and ludicrous details in this totally implausible story of Boyne s eg Bruno s ignorance of bas...

    A powerful concept, but very poorly written even allowing for the young adult target audience and one of a tiny number of books I can think of that was better in the film version.PlotBruno is 9 and lives in Berlin in 1943 with his parents and 12 year old sister They are wealthy and his father is an important soldier who is promoted to be the Commandant at Auschwitz The trick of the story is that Bruno doesn t realise the horror of what goes on behind the barbed wire, where everyone wears striped pyjamas, even when he befriends a boy of the same age at a corner of the camp Although his father can be strict and distant, Bruno is unfailing in his trust in the goodness of his father In the film, there was at least a gradual, if reluctant, dawning of doubt about his father and all he stood for, but that doesn t happen in the book the themes of family, friendship and trust are barely touched on.Implausible IgnoranceThe main problem is that it s told from Bruno s viewpoint, and he is ridiculously naive and ignorant for the son of a senior Nazi Not knowing, and not wanting to know, the hor...

    The Boy in the Striped Pajamas is truly an amazing yet daunting novel that I will never forget The author John Boyne did a masterful job of depicting the setting in such vivid detail and exposing the events in a manner that I felt a constant emotional pull as the story unfolded and impending doom lingered on the horizon.I was recommended this novel a while back while reading The Book Thief, but after finishing that story and experiencing such deep sadness, I knew I couldn t jump into another novel about the Holocaust for quite some time I m glad I waited because as with other works that cover this topic, distance and perspective is key I feel the author did a grand job of juxtaposing two resounding themes in such a flawless manner one being of the evil that was the Holocaust against the second theme that of the innocence of a child I thought it was brilliant of Boyne to tell the story from the perspective of a nine year old German boy as you experience the events of this abominable and unthinkable time in history as a mere complicit bystander, which ultimately leaves you with a sense of hopelessness The story unfolds the day Bruno arrives home to discover his family is moving from Berlin to Auschwitz where his father will serve as a Commandant ...

    When I was very young, I lived in Romania Because there was past drama in my family, I had three grandmothers and two grandfathers I was close to two of my grandmothers and one of my grandfathers, because they lived near my mother, brother, stepfather and I.The other couple, I only saw during summers They lived in the country, where there was no indoor bathroom, no internet, no chocolate and no sense of community that I felt at the age of six Every morning, I would wake up from the best of dreams that my mom would be coming that day to pick me up But she never did, because she was far away and we had to stay for three whole months with our grandparents.I felt lonely I had no one to play with There was my brother, but just like Bruno s sister, he was older and we had nothing in common, or so it seemed at that time One day, I met a little girl I was surprised I d never seen her before, because she was the daughter of our neighbours I was so happy that I immediately invited her to our house.We played for a while, and it was wonderful For once, I wasn t thinking about going back home or feeling bad about ignoring the eager little dog we had that always scratched my legs badly I had a friend.When my gra...
