Boy in The Striped Pajamas
Transcript of Boy in The Striped Pajamas
Can adults be naive? in what ways can they be naive? What adults in the movie seemed naive?
Adults can be naive in many different ways. First of all, just because they're older doesn't mean they know more, but they tend to act, and think that they know more. Some adults are really close-minded, so they can't make valid arguments from all viewpoints. In the movie, the father seemed naive. He thinks that Bruno will be a good boy staying in the house without going anywhere.
Does Bruno and Gretel's tutor take advantage of the children's innocence in what he teaches them? How? What were these ideas?
In the movie, Bruno and Gretel's tutor let them know more about the world as from an adults perspective. He took advantage of their innocence by giving them a one sided story of the war between the jews, making the jews look like extremely bad people; the children were to young to make their own judgment about whether this information was incorrect or correct.
What do 'innocent' and 'naive' mean when used to describe children?
Innocent- never done anything wrong, never seen/done anything so disturbing it has scared them, has the whole world in front of them with nothing to stop them, defenseless.
Naive- gullible and not intelligent due to lack of experience in life
Exploring an Innocent Perspective
How does the opening scene of Bruno and his friends represent their innocence?
In the opening scene the boys are naively running through the Berlin streets in the middle of the war with no fear or supervision. Their innocence is represented by the freedom and safety they feel in the middle of tragic circumstances.
