Last night, I went to a pre-screening of "The Boy in the Striped Pajamas".
Seen through the eyes of Bruno, the 8 year old son of a Nazi commander of a concentration camp, is the story of his innocent friendship with an 8 year old Jewish boy, Shmuel.
They were separated by barbed wire, yet completely accepting of each other, as if they were living and playing on the same street. Sharing conversation, food, and games, they formed a bond.
When Shmuel reveals to Bruno that his father is missing, Bruno sneaks into the camp, disguised in "striped pajamas", the issued prisoner pants and shirt, to help his friend find his father.
A most powerful ending. Another reminder of the millions of innocent victims of the Holocaust.
