Book review for ‘the Boy in the stripped Pyjamas’: A heartbreak but not a very real story

“The boy in the stripped Pyjamas” by Irish author John Boyne. The book quite metaphorically illustrates the fact that the adults were really not concerned with what is happening under their noses while the kids were just been broken, separated by fences and lines drawn between races.

A movie was made on the book in 2020 starring Collin Firth and Julie Walters.
