Research in Animoto Conflict TThe Boy in the Striped Pajamas was written with many different conflicts. One of those conflicts is the holocaust. The holocaust is a horrible thing for many people, like the people in the concentration camps. It is also horrible for people who have to see it happen like Bruno. Another one of those conflicts is the relationship between Bruno's father, and mother. It was definitely worse with Bruno's father. They never took time to spend with each other and they had different thoughts on things like the concentration camps. Lastly, another conflict is that Bruno and Shumel are separated. Shumel is now Bruno’s best friend, and they can’t even play with each other. These conflicts were horrible, but made this an amazing book. Main Characters Bruno- 9 year old boy who moves to countryside, and is unfilimair of the holocaust. Gretel- Brunos sister who is around 13 years old. Father- Father of Bruno and Gretel. A commandant in the war for Hitler and odesn't mind all the horriblt things happening. Mother- Mother of Bruno and Gretel. Hasn't made up her mind on the holocaust.

He didn't want it know. Shmuel and Bruno had become such great friends it was hard to say goodbye, but they had to have one adventure before Bruno returns to Berlin. Two days before they leave Shmuel sadly announces that his father has gone missing. Bruno knew that that would be their adventure. Bruno comes on to Shmuel’s side of the fence.

He finds himself at the tall fence he had seen out his window. This fence seems to go on forever. He sees something quite a ways down, so he starts walking. He was right, there was a boy (Shmuel). These boys decide to be friends because each other are all they got.
