Jackie's Forget Me Nots

No vase can overflow if you never fill it up.


I’m reading The Boy in the Striped Pajamas. It’s about a nine-year-old boy named Bruno whose family relocates from their Berlin home because of his father’s new job as a commandant. He explains what it is like living in Auschwitz.

Bruno meets a boy who lived on the other side of the fence, and they become friends even though they would both be in trouble if the soldiers or his father knew about it. He manages to keep it a secret but tells his sister that he has an imaginary friend.

At one point it brought tears to my eyes when Bruno gave his new friend some food in the kitchen and when he got caught he told the soldier that he had never seen Shmuel before, which was a lie and it reminded me of Peter denying Jesus.

It is a very carefully written story about how the Nazis treated Jews. Of course, we see it through the eyes of a naive child named Bruno but that is what I liked about it.

I recommend it, and I hope to watch the movie as well.
