John Boyne’s book “The Boy In The Striped Pajamas,” has been adapted into a movie.  Little boy Bruno’s family relocates from Berlin to Poland during World War II, where his father is a Nazi soldier. Lonely Bruno befriends a the boy who liives on the other side of the fence, where everyone wears striped pajamas.  What poor Bruno doesn’t realize is that the people in the striped pajamas are Jewish prisoners in a concentration camp.  The film is beautifully directed by Mark Herman.  I won’t tell you how it ends, but if you have Kleenex nearby, you might find yourself using them.
