The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas

What is Elsa's personality in The Boy in the Striped Pajamas?

Well, Elsa must care somewhat about Jews because she said "Thank you" to Pavel for bandaging Bruno's leg. She also got mad when she found out she was in a death camp.

But she is also quiet, because she did not do anything. (Except she planned to move before Buno dies)

So, Elsa is:

Caring

Somewhat quiet

A good mother/wife

Brave to speak what she believes about the death camp, but not doing anything about it

What happens at the end of The Boy in Striped Pajamas?

MAJOR SPOILER!! At the end of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas (2008), while looking for Shmuel's father Bruno and Shmuel are huddled with a group of men in a barrack. Rain begins to fall. They are told they are going home soon, and go underground; to which Bruno believes they are getting out of the rain. The prisoners are ordered to strip, (this is very non-explicit) and are shoved in a metal room. Other prisoners (known as sonderkommandos) reassure them, "It's just a shower"
A sonderkommando then shuts the door and a Nazi with a gas mask pours some of the poison (Known as "Zyklon B") into it.

Bruno's father is barely there in time to save the two, and he knows what happens. You can hear smoke crackling towards the end, signifying that they burned the bodies. Elsa screams her son's name while Gretel stares in awe. The film closes with the changing room, and the prisoner's uniforms waiting for the cycle to happen again.

Does pavel die in the The Boy in the Striped Pajamas?

**SPOILER**

Yes. When serving wine at a dinner table and spills it, Kurt Kotler beats him then kills him with a bullet.

Following from Brookiemonster: (correct answer!!)Actually, in the book Pavel doesn't die but he isn't mentioned again - the reader is not even told what happens. Instead the reader is forced to make conclusions based on the fact that, due to our prior knowledge, we know that he beats him up and since he is not mentioned again we PRESUME that he is dead - we don't actually know!

Is The Boy in the Striped Pajamas true?

No, the story is fiction. The father, Ralf, was based on the real-life commandant, Rudolf Hoess. And Auschwitz certainly existed, but the idea that it was possible to crawl under the fence is absurd. In reality, the fences had a high-voltage current and the whole of the main site at Auschwitz was surrounded by a 'no-go' strip at least 300 yards wide. Anyone seen in the 'no-go' area was shot on sight. See the link.
