<div>BookPage review by James Webb</div> Book Review - The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne
<div>My opinion on this book</div><div><br></div><div>Some books are a “must”. That is the case of “The boy in the striped pyjamas”, a friendship story set in one of the most infamous concentration camps of the Nazi Germany. </div><div>Tenderness, innocence, brutality and horror… the story offers an in-depth look at the Holocaust which does not hide the naked brutality of the Nazi regime or the intolerable passivity of the ordinary people.</div><div>Bruno finds his new home in “Out-with” a horrible place in spite of not realizing how deeply brutal the concentration camp is. However, when he meets Shmuel, a strange boy in striped pyjamas, on the other side of the fence, life becomes better now that he has made a friend. </div><div>This moving story of two little boys living in the darkest of times is far from childlike. It offers a different view of the Holocaust. There is no need to judge, no need to discuss… the tragic end finally brings to light the horror nobody wanted to see.</div>
