climax of the story. The climax is the most exciting part of the story. It's when the main character has to make a major decision or does something important. The falling action is when questions that you
had earlier begin to get answered and it leads
to the resolution. Resolution The Boy in the Striped Pajamas! Exposition At the beginning of the novel Bruno's family moves to Auschwitz because his father got a promotion. Bruno hates his new house at Auschwitz because it's much smaller and there is no one to play with. At this new house he is not allowed to explore. NO EXCEPTIONS! Bruno gets introduced to Lieutenant Kotler and Pavel. Bruno and his sister Gretel get home schooled by a man named Herr Liszt. Bruno goes exploring even though he is not allowed and he meets Shmuel. Bruno has a flashback of the night the Fury (Hitler) comes to dinner. Bruno finds out more about Shmuel's past and finds it interesting and wants to become friends with him. One night at dinner Pavel spills wine on Lieutenant Kotler's lap and Lieutenant Kotler gets FURIOUS and beats Pavel to death! Bruno thinks the reason why Pavel spilt the wine on Lieutenant Kotler was because they dont feed him at the Farm (camp). Bruno tries to find out more about the people in the striped pajamas. Bruno's older sister Gretel finds him in his room and starts questioning him and she almost finds out about Shmuel but he pretends he's his imaginary friend. One day Bruno walks into the kitchen and finds Shmuel cleaning glasses. Lieutenant Kotler comes in and finds out shmuel was eating and punishes him. Bruno's grandmother dies and his parents have a huge argument that night. After his parents argument, Bruno's mother decides to move away with Bruno and Gretel. However Bruno sneaks away to the camp disguised as one of the people in the striped pajamas before they could move. :( Bruno's family realize he is missing and they go looking for him. Meanwhile, Bruno and Shmuel are looking for Shmuel's papa in the camp. They get sent to the gas chamber (showers) with a bunch of other people. Bruno and Shmuel are gassed and killed with the other Jewish people. Bruno's family arrive at the camp and find Bruno's clothes on the ground near the fence. Then they live sadly for the rest of their lives because of Bruno's death. The resolution in this novel is Bruno's death. Even though it is sad, this is the resolution because his death made his family realize how horrible the situation really is and the father no longer wants to be a part of it. This realization has solved all of the problems that occurred in this novel. The exposition is the information that the author gives you at the beginning of the story. The protagonist in this novel is Bruno. The antagonist in this novel is the commandant. The time that this story is set in is the 1940s during the Holocaust. The place that this story is set in is Out With (Auschwitz) in Germany. The internal conflict in this novel is man v. man. We know this because ever since Bruno's family moved to Auschwitz, there have been lots of fights and arguments between family members. Also, people are killing people in the camps. The external conflict is man v. society. We know this because during this time, World War 2 was starting and people were fighting for the people in the camps to be released. The author's theme was the Holocaust through the eyes of a young boy. We know this because the story was told from Bruno's point of view and he is only 9 years old and lived during the time of the Holocaust. The symbolism in this novel was the Nazi symbol and the Jewish symbol. We know this because in this novel, the Nazi symbol represented hatred and the Jewish symbol represented the religion of the people who were put in the concentration camps. However, Bruno did not know this. The foreshadowing in this novel was the part where it said he felt an urge to help his friend, but he couldn't think of anything he could do to make it better. We think this is the foreshadowing because when Bruno is thinking this, it lead us to believe that something bad was going to happen soon and Bruno would not be able to stop it. The irony in this novel is everything that Bruno says and thinks about the camp is the opposite of reality. We know this because Bruno is very naive and he does not realize how horrible the situation really is and he tries to make sense of it by making the situation seem better in a way that he will understand.
