Excellent but very sad film. Recently read The Tattooist of Auschwitz so adding this to my library for future reading.


Discover an extraordinary tale of innocence, friendship and the horrors of war.

‘Some things are just sitting there, minding their own business, waiting to be discovered. Like America. And other things are probably better off left alone’

Nine-year-old Bruno has a lot of things on his mind. Who is the ‘Fury’? Why did he make them leave their nice home in Berlin to go to ‘Out-With’ ? And who are all the sad people in striped pyjamas on the other side of the fence? The grown-ups won’t explain so Bruno decides there is only one thing for it - he will have to explore this place alone. What he discovers is a new friend. A boy with the very same birthday. A boy in striped pyjamas. But why can’t they ever play together?

I think what's more disturbing is the fact that my kids are reading this for school...
I guess it's good in a way, but wow - hard hitting story (I have a paperback copy).

Necessary. They need to know the horrors of history.

Indeed. Some history can't be left forgotten. It's a reminder to us all that this actually happened and it must not repeat it self ever again!

My five year old is worried about turtles and wants to spend his life saving them because someone came to school and brain washed them

While i would like to agree with you i would say that isnt the case at all you just need to have a look what we as human beings are doing to one another nobody has learned anything in fact its it's worse than its ever been
Every child should go to Auschwitz as part of a national curriculum for their Country so nobody forgets what when on there. Very humbling place.

I do agree everyone should visit at some point , though it should be a choice and the children would need to be of a certain age and maturity to understand how to conduct themselves there, we went two weeks ago on a tour for six hours and we had a couple of children on our tour and they spent most of the time looking at their phones . Certain times they were chasing each other over the grounds.
I can only imagine how hard it would be to keep younger children under control in a large group.

Also why just Auschwitz there are many more places that genocide has taken place before and after that if we go with what you are saying kids would not learn anything else apart from mass murders

I agree. I haven't been to Auschwitz but I have been to Dachau. That camp was what you might call a 'test and design camp' and while not many people died there (Iirc they only executed spies at the camp) I learned some horrific stuff about wider the wider social elements of naziism and the big companies who willingly bid for work from the Nazis (BASF, Siemens, vw, Hugo Boss etc).

There is a degree of 'they didn't have a choice' but I was horrified to learn that BASF and Siemens worked on a joint tender to design and build the cremation ovens used the the concentration camps, and they actively bid against other contractors for the work.

What are you on about? Tenagers studying history around the globe and more so, WW2 should be allowed to visit to show that it did exist and to see it first hand.

first you said it should be on the national curriculum then you said they should be allowed to visit, which is it, do you consider the holodomor a genocide?.in which more people died, and why do you think that one event in history should and does get given more attention than others.?
Two Hundred Years Together by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn is a pretty good read if your into history books, it's strangely not been translated into english though.

Boom - that's the phrase right there. Young kids are so easily influenced, I witness this everyday with my lot, especially after they have watched a few toy adverts!

Just wondering did anyone tell you where the nazis got oil from considering Germany did not have oilfields

Very limited i see you might need to read some more books about this Auschwitz was just one camp there were more if you going to tell a story tell all of it especially since you are proposing to teach kids

No. But this article indicates in they largely sourced oil from their own coal (similar shale oil mining used to be a big industry where I live near Edinburgh) and from invading Romania which apparently has/had oil reserves. Prior to the war they imported oil from Mexico, but when that stopped they sought to replace that by invading Baku.

No - I understand the need to educate. I just didn't think it was something to teach primary school kids - I guess that's a whole can of worms right there. I mean who is to say when it's a good time to learn? Although does knowledge of how horrible the world can be have an impact on young minds?
