Based on the novel by John Boyne, The Boy in the Striped Pajamas is a wrenching Holocaust story about a young German boy and his forbidden friendship with a Jewish child.

Bruno is living a charmed life in Berlin as the son of a high-ranking Nazi soldier when his father is suddenly transferred to a job in the country. Bruno is lonely and confused by his new surroundings. He doesn?t understand why he can't play at the nearby "farm" (which is in fact, a concentration camp, although Bruno doesn?t know this). Bruno soon sneaks out and meets a young boy, Shmuel, a prisoner in the camp. The boys play games through the barbed wire fence and build a friendship.

Shmuel is in trouble and Bruno vows to help him which leads to the film's devastating climax. It is a deeply moving and remarkable story.

All are welcome.
