The Boy in the Striped Pajamas
Transcript of The Boy in the Striped Pajamas
Bruno (at first) didn't know that Shmuel was Jewish and they were still best friends even after he found out.
"You're my best friend, Shmuel. My best friend for life."-Boyne, page 213
This quote shows how much Shmuel's friendship meant to Bruno. Since Bruno was leaving to move to Berlin, Bruno wanted to make sure that Shmuel wasn't alone, and promised him that he would help him find his father, who was missing, even if it meant risking his life.
The friendship between Bruno and Shmuel mattered a lot to both of them; they both cared about each other and were best friends.
"... Pretending to be a person from the other side of the fence." "A Jew, you mean," said Shmuel. "Yes," said Bruno, shifting on his feet a little uncomfortably. "That's right."-Boyne, page 205
Bruno knew that he was not supposed to be anywhere near the camp because that's what his father had told him. Despite this, Bruno decided to help Shmuel find his father because he was Shmuel's friend.
The book shows equality by showing how Shmuel and Bruno, despite their differences, are best friends.
The theme of friendship is shown by how Bruno didn't care that he and Shmuel were of different religions, how Bruno cared about Shmuel, and how the book shows that equality is important using friendship. Bruno and Shmuel know they are different but treat each other with respect and as equals. They oversaw these differences and despite Bruno's parents telling him not to go by the fence, he did it anyways and made a friend. Bruno tried to help Shmuel by bringing him food so that he wouldn't be hungry at the camp. He also wanted to help find Shmuel's father, which ends in disaster. Bruno also said that he cared more about Shmuel than his old friends in Berlin.
The theme of friendship is a very well-depicted theme in The Boy in the Striped Pajamas. The book shows how the unlikely friendship between Bruno and Shmuel helped them both through hard times. The theme of friendship is shown by how Bruno didn't care that he and Shmuel were of different religions, how Bruno cared about Shmuel, and how the book shows that equality is important using friendship.

"Yes, but they're different, aren't they? said Shmuel. "No one's ever given me an armband," said Bruno... "I'd think I'd quite like one. I don't know which one I'd prefer though, your's or Father's."- Boyne, page 127.
The quote above shows how both Bruno and Shmuel accept the differences they have and view each other as equals.
