Rebecca Griffith November 20, 2011 American Government Films: The Boy in the Striped Pajamas: The main argument of this film is that innocent people were the victims of the holocaust. They showcase this by the main character, a little boy named Bruno, the son of a high-ranking SS officer. Bruno and his family move to a house behind a concentration camp and he befriends a young prisoner. One day Bruno sneaks into the concentration camp and is sent with a group to the gas chambers and killed. Because Bruno is so young, he represents the innocence of all the prisoners. The woods between the house and the camp was also a symbol for right and wrong. Each time Bruno went to the camp, he had to cross through the wood and the line between right and wrong. I loved this movie. I thought it was a little dark though, especially considering the two main characters were boys under the age of ten. The plotline was intense and suspenseful and I was kept wondering about what would come next.
