Then you can go into the discussion of how the Holocaust was kept secret. Thanks for all of your research and persistence in helping us navigate through stormy waters.
Prisoner's clothing from Sachsenhausen concentration camp One day, Elsa discovers the reality of Ralf's assignment after Lieutenant Kurt Kotler lets slip that the black smoke coming from the camp's chimneys is due to the burning corpses of Jews.
Bruno is initially upset about moving to Out-With in actuality, Auschwitz  and leaving his friends, Daniel, Karl and Martin.
As he walks along the fence, he meets a Jewish boy named Shmuel, who he learns shares his birthday. The Boy in the Striped Pajamas builds to a brutal, haunting finale that doesn't let innocence, love, or friendship save the day and sticks with you long after the credits have rolled.
The prof said that she was impressed by my stand and decided to poll the whole class and give us a choice.
They are packed into a gas chamberwhere Bruno and Shmuel hold each other's hands. The pair's lack of knowledge on the true nature of the camp is revealed: Bruno thinks that the striped uniforms that Shmuel, Pavel, and the other prisoners wear are pyjamas and Shmuel believes his grandparents died from an illness during their journey to the camp.
Of course, thousands of other children at Auschwitz including all the girls who arrived at the camp were gassed". Bruno starts meeting Shmuel regularly, sneaking him food and playing board games with him.
I find his treatment of the Holocaust to be superficial, misleading, and even offensive.
