Bruno has a better relationship with his mother then his father, Bruno is clearly fairly close as he asks most of his questions to his mother. His father is working at the camp so his mother is one only people he can talk to.
Because it is a concentration camp. Bruno's father is head of this camp and had to move close to it, to make sure everything was running the way it was suppose to be. This explains why they were so close to it. Concentration camps were a brutal place. It was basically a slaughter house, and it was pointless in trying to make it look appealing to the eye when the things going on inside the fence could scar you forever.
Bruno, son of the Commandant, is friends with Shmuel, a Jew on the other side of the fence.
Maria defended father because when Maria's mother died and she was homeless, he took her in and gave her a job.
I think thats what jews wore when in concertration camps. In the book Bruno asks this question and schmuel replies with "its what they gave us, the soldiers took our clothes and belongings away from us and replaced it with these"
they both had the same birthday
Mark Herman directed The Boy in the Striped Pajamas.
Lieutenant Kurt Kotler. He is sent to a different camp by the commandant for unknown reasons (although some speculate he was having an affair with the commandant's wife).

Well, in the book they get taken on a death march into a big room. Bruno believes that it is a room to keep them dry until the rain stops. It does not specifically say how they died in the book, yet after some research you will find that the room that they were brought into was a gas chamber (unknown to them). These chambers were common in Nazi concentration camps. They found it an easy way to kill of the prisoners. Most prisoners were innocent, and randomly picked to die. These chambers were filled with poisonous gas, so they most likely just suffocated from the gas.
Gretel is 12 years old and Bruno is 9 years old.
Bruno's surname is not released in the novel.
Sara Michelle Fetters: Why did you want to write this book? Where did the idea come from?
John Boyne: I started writing the book in April of 2004 and it wasn't the book I intended writing at all. I was a student of the Holocaust for a number of years but I never expected to write about it, but I ended up having this idea, the idea of two boys at a fence talking to each other, and I thought to tell the story from the point of view of the German child. I thought the image of him walking to the fence everyday and asking questions would be a fresh take on the subject matter. The idea just seemed too interesting to ignore.
Because Father arranged to pay Maria's mother's hospital bill out of his own pocket. He also paid the expences for her mother's funeral. Not only did he do all of this but he also gave Maria a place to live, clothes, and food. When he did not have to.
