Round character
- Concentration camp (story wouldn't make sense without the camps)
He is motivated to see Bruno(his best friend) each day
If it wasn't this time period, Shmuel wouldn't be imprisoned within this camp.
Shmuel is caring (when he listens to Bruno's problems and stories)
Shmuel is a true friend to Bruno.

Life Lessons Learned
The life lesson learned in the book is "a fence may divide us, but we are all the same." Bruno learns no matter what side of the fence you are on, you have to treat others the way you want to be treated. Bruno also learns you have to treat someone equal regardless of the race, color, and religion.

Golden Lines
“He looked down and did something quite out of character for him: he took hold of Shmuel's tiny hand in his and squeezed it tightly." - Page 213
"You're my best friend, Shmuel," he said. "My best friend for life.” - Page 213

These lines convey to the theme by showing how even though both boys are on the opposite side of the fence, they are still best friends and treat each other with equality.
Roxana S.
Could the story take place today?
The story
could not
take place in today's modern world.
There are no concentration camps that Shmuel would be in because of Geneva Conventions.
-If there weren't camps
Shmuel wouldn't meet Bruno, therefore there wouldn't even be a story to be told.

Round Character
Brown hair, blue eyes, short,skinny
Bruno is kind to people he has never met for example when he first met Shmuel.
Bruno is very curious. He is always asking his Mother and Father questions.
Bruno moves from Berlin to America and that affected him because he had to leave behind his friends and family.
Bruno is motivated by knowing at the end of the day he will get to see his best friend Shmuel.
The time period he lived in which was during World War II which affected Bruno because he had to move a lot due to his father's job.
The life lessons my character learns is that people should be accepted no matter what side of the fence they are on.

Author's Purpose
We believe that the other wrote about this event because it tells you to be friends with whoever you want. No matter what your differences are. Tells that differences can't change you. This event is also very touching because these two friends, Bruno and Shmuel, risk there safety to be friends and talk to each other.
Jack E.
Shmuel learns what having and being a true friend is all about.
Could the main character be alive today?
, because back then most of the Jews were killed.

, because he was wealthy, and is like a young boy of today.

People would go to the movies almost every day
They did so to temporarily forget about the war
Most houses were small with up to 3 bedrooms
They also had a kitchen, relaxing room and always a bathroom
People also covered windows with tape so during an air raid, the glass won't shatter

Golden lines
1. "We're like twins" -Bruno (pg 110)
"We don't have the luxury of thinking ... Some people make all the decisions for us." Pg. 14

"We should never have let the Fury come to dinner." Pg. 40
This explains how even if people think you are different (jewish), you are still always people, and we are all the same, inside and out.
These quotes tell the reader that the Fury, Hitler, made many of the decisions for families during this period. It also states
that many kids didn't like to have their
decisions made for them by Hitler
2. "Why are there so many people on that side of the fence?" - Bruno (pg 115)
This quote explains there were so many captured Jews and they were all isolated from the community because they were "different." The only Jew who wasn't, was

Does the story make sense?
The story makes sense because during WW 2, there were many concentration camps, such as at Out-With, that contained Jews. It also makes sense because Hitler often made highly ranked officers work at concentration camps. Also, when ever you left a room with a solider in it, you would say," Hale Hitler.
Golden Lines
1. " My office is Out Of Bounds At All Times And No Exceptions."(p.10)

This shows that Father is so serious about his job, that he doesn't even want his own son to be with him.

2. "Maria is just an overpaid maid." (p.17)

This tells the reader that Father doesn't really care about anyone or anything besides himself and his job.
