"The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas is John Boyne’s heartbreaking tale, first published on 5 January 2006, following the friendship between Bruno and Shmuel during the Holocaust in the second world war... The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas acts as a poignant fable, offering a unique perspective on a hideous reality." (Thompson, 2016, January 6)
