The Boy in the Striped Pajamas: a Fable by John Boyne
Bruno is nine when his family moves from their luxurious Berlin home to the country, where "the Fury" has appointed Bruno's father commandant. From his bedroom window Bruno can see hundreds of people dressed in striped pajamas behind a high wire fence. Trying to find out what his father does at “Out-With”, Bruno follows the fence line where he meets and makes friends with Shmuel, a boy who lives on the other side.
