This leaves many to assume children will view things differently•
These views tend to be absent of pain and cruelty•
Children have had less time to get to know the world, so have less knowledge of it•
Many children lose their innocence, the age differing, depending on experience
‘Losing innocence’ is a term generally meaning that someone has come to understand how the world works.
What do innocent and naive mean when used to describe children?
How does Bruno represent innocence? Give examples
Throughout the novel, Bruno is represented as being a young naïve child
In fact, it is a major characteristic of Bruno
He is naïve due to lack of knowledge, as his parents shelter him from knowing the truth about the Nazi’s
Bruno does not learn the truth about the concentration camp
Suspicions at the sight of the treatment•
Confused when not to be considered as people•
Sense something was up with the gunshot•
Unjust treatment to Pavel• Reaction of lieutenant Kotler confirmed the theory ⇒
View of father as ‘generally a very kind and thoughtful man’⇒
Thinks that he would not participate in the injustice, or try to stop it.
Can adults be naïve?
It is not just children that can be naïve-adults sometimes can be just as naïve, if not more so. •
Grandparents are often naïve in terms of their grandchildren•
They often believe that they can do nothing wrong.•
Adults who were sheltered as children would not have much knowledge of the world•
They would not understand much about things theirparents sheltered them from•
Some may choose to shelter themselves from something, and then be quite naïve in terms of that topic•
If adults choose to believe the best in people, they tend to be naïve when it comes to the worst in people

The boy in the striped pyjamas
When does Bruno start seeing things differently and why does he not want
to believe that his father is involved in
such cruel actions?
As a child, I was totally oblivious to the fact that the opinions that I voiced were heard by the people surrounding me and affected them. This is the case with many children. A while ago, my friend and I were asked to take her little sister, Bailey, to the nearby park. When we got there, there was a slightly overweight women who was playing with her child on the swing. Bailey asked me and my friend why the lady was so fat in a really loud voice. Unfortunately, the lady heard and felt
slightly awkward after that small mishap.
Bruno and Shmuel maintain their innocence throughout the novel
A sheltered perspective is shown regarding the issue of concentration camps
Bruno does not learn the truth about concentration camps
Rules set by his parents prevent him from realizing the truth
Neither Bruno nor Shmuel know what really happens in a concentration camp. What allows them to keep their innocence?
Give examples from your own experiences when you saw the world from a different perspective.
While growing up, I was completely ignorant to the idea that anything bad will happen. Since I grew up in such a protected society oversea’s, the area I lived in was small and safe. Everyone knew each other well and as young as 7, I was allowed to just leave a note on my front door for my mum who was at work and make
my way to friends houses. I wasn’t aware
of the wrong that goes on in the world, I thought that everyone was kind and considerate and that the worst thing a
person could do was bully someone or
not invite them to their birthday party.
I also had different perspectives of what was important as a child. Back then to me the most important thing was playing with my barbies and little pet shops. I had to make sure they had the right clothes on and that their hair was combed each day. Now, my priorities are completely different such as school work, social life and tests.
