A perfect copy of the Australian first edition / first printing, with the full numberline 13579108642 on the copyright page. An absolutely perfect copy of this hugely successful novel. Set during the Second World War, it tells the story of an impossible friendship between two boys, Bruno and Shmuel, who live on opposite sides of a mysterious wire fence. Bruno is German. Shmuel is Jewish and, like everyone else in his camp, has chosen to wear striped pyjamas. Heartbreaking and unforgettable. This copy is in pristine condition. It was bought new, and has been stored in wraps ever since. Not price-clipped, and with no marks of any kind. Has never been read.

Sinopsis:

Nine year old Bruno knows nothing of the Final Solution and the Holocaust. He is oblivious to the appalling cruelties being inflicted on the people of Europe by his country. All he knows is that he has been moved from a comfortable home in Berlin to a house in a desolate area where there is nothing to do and no-one to play with. Until he meets Shmuel, a boy who lives a strange parallel existence on the other side of the adjoining wire fence and who, like the other people there, wears a uniform of striped pyjamas. Bruno's friendship with Shmuel will take him from innocence to revelation. And in exploring what he is unwittingly a part of, he will inevitably become subsumed by the terrible process.

Book Description

This work was set in Berlin, 1942. When Bruno returns home from school one day, he discovers that his belongings are being packed in crates. His father has received a promotion and the family must move from their home to a new house far far away, where there is no one to play with and nothing to do. A tall fence running alongside stretches as far as the eye can see and cuts him off from the strange people he can see in the distance. But, Bruno longs to be an explorer and decides that there must be more to this desolate new place than what meets the eye. While exploring his new environment, he meets another boy whose life and circumstances are very different to his own, and their meeting results in a friendship that has devastating consequences. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
