  6. 6. Imagine you could talk to Bruno's father. What would you say to him?
    I said to him that the same tragedy that happend whit his son,happend whit the millions of jews that he is killing,and that the same sadness that the death of Bruno produve in him,also appear in the millions of familys that he broke.

  7. Chapter 16;question 6:
    Gretel´s new interests was about Hitler,because she meet one of his father´s soldier which was too much patriot and which was obiously in Hitler´s side so he was a nazi and because of that Gretel,who likes him,began to put posters in her room about that things.She felt higher so she threw out her dolls.

  8. Chapter 19;question 3:
    The camp isn´t it as Bruno had imagined,he looks disappointed because he doesn´t understand why in the movied that his father and the other soldiers saw everything looks find and then when he was there he doesn´t look like he believed.The camp was a bad concentration camp.

  11. Chapter 19
    Question 4:
    Bruno wanted to go home but after a while he heard a sound and everyone who wear stripped pyjamas gathered together and started walking Shmuel told him to keep walking and not to stop and told him that he can go his home after a while and do what the soldiers said.

  12. Chapter 19
    Question 5:
    Ater all the jews and Bruno started walking together at the order of soldiers,they stopped in one room.They like the room as it was warm and outside it was raining and was cold.But later the room got hotter and hotter and hotter,so the people started to sweat very much as started replacing their clothes but it`s still get hotter and hotter.So I think that they are burned alive as the Hitler also burned the jews alive and they also do thee same things as Hitler.So i think that the jews and Bruno were burned alive or probably had died because of the lack of the oxigen as the room was locked and their were many people in the same room.

  13. Yes Saad, Jews were fisrt poisoned with a gas and then burnt or incinerated.

  14. Chapter 16 Question 7

  18. Chapter 16 Question 5. What is odd about Bruno and Shmuel's friendship? That they've never play together, or even touch and see them without the fence in between.

  19. Chapter 17 Question 4. Why does the commandant summon his children to his office? Because he wants to tell them that they had to get back to Berlin with their mother.

  28. Chapter 19 question 6:
    I would say ti Bruno's father that he had to care more about Bruno and if they returned to Berlin the things will be better.

    As well I would say him that his work is not the only important thing.
