The Boy in the Striped Pajamas
Transcript of The Boy in the Striped Pajamas
Inhumanity towards other humans
Inhumanity towards other humans:
This theme is found in both Night by Elie Wiesel and The Boy in the Striped Pajamas.
In Night we can easily notice the inhumanity. The Nazis burning the babies and a son killing his own father for bread crumbs.
In the Boy in the Striped Pajamas, Lieutenant Kurt Kotler kicks and horribly abuses Pavel, an old and broken Jew worker because he dropped some wine on the table.
There is a obvious hatred to the Jews from Hitler's supporters, but there is also hatred in the camps in Night.
The Jews beat and steal from each other for their own wants. They should be sticking together at a time like this, but instead choose to only look out for themselves.
Franek mentally abused Elie's father until he got Elie's crown. Rabi's son left him because he thought he would be better on his own. Family should stick together,
In the Boy in the Striped Pajamas, Bruno's mother and grandmother fees hatred towards Bruno's father because of his actions supporting Hitler.
The whole household hates Pavel except Bruno and his mother. And why do they hate him? Because he is Jewish, and Hitler says Jews are the cause of all problems.
I think Night and the Boy in the Striped Pajamas is all about equality.
You can't judge someone by their religion or what they believe in because everyone is equal.
No one has a right to treat someone else harshly because they believe that that human being is worthless.
This lesson isn't just implied to religion.
Anyone whose different isn't less important to someone who fits in more.
A boy named Bruno moves next to a concentration camp because of his father's job, who is a general. He meets a boy named Shmuel in the farm and they talk on opposite sides of the barb wire. Bruno believed that the camp was a farm until halfway through the movie.
His mother doesn't support Hitler at all while his father and his sister do.
Bruno doesn't stick up for Shmuel when he has the chance to help him. (watch video)
Bruno goes to the spot where he meets Shmuel often but doesn't find him there until a few days and sees that Shmuel has been beat. He apologizes.
He plans on making it up for Shmuel by helping him find his papa who got lost in the camp. Bruno digs a whole and wears the same striped pajamas and goes into he camps.
THe SS officers call Shmuel's unit down to take a shower and Shmuel dies along with Bruno.
The Boy in the Striped Pajamas
Hatred began and continued the Holocaust
Writer: John Boyne (novel)

People should stand up to someone whose bringing other people down.
Being a bystander will just give the person more confidence about their actions. Standing up against someone whose wrong will stop the cruelty that's going on.
Whether it's a small problem like a school bully or something as big as the Holocaust, people can make a difference.

THE BOY IN THE STRIPED PAJAMAS began as an idea of two boys talking over a fence. Then, the words just began to pour out.
