The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas

Dear Diary,

I came home and mama said we have to leave our house. When I asked why mama just told me to pack only what I needed and to be quick. She also told me we may be gone for a long time. I hope I will enjoy the place wherever we are going. I am looking forward to finding out where we will be ging to. But mama doesn't look very happy about it. I should find out more soon.

Yours Shmuel 

 

Dear Diary,

We are living in a different place in Cracow where there is a big wall blocking the other side.  We all must live in one room. It is nothing I expected it to be. There is more bad news, we have to live with another family who has a big boy  called Luka who hits me. I don't even say anything to him but he still hits me! I really hope we can go home soon. But as long as I am with my family and we are together that is the main thing. It couldn't get any worse than this.

Dear Diary,

Soldiers with an armband shown below:

took the four of us away from the house and put us in a crowded train with over a hundred other people. I really thought the train ride would never end . The worst thing was that mama was taken from us! Papa tried to get her back but there was nothing he could have done. The three of us were then taken to what looked like a camp where we were given striped pyjamas to wear. My little brother was then taken to a room with other little boys and some looked very weak. Now it is just me and papa.

Dear Diary,

I met a boy today called Bruno. He is also the same age as me and has the same birthday as me. He seems very nice. He even told me he would give me some food. I am hoping he can help me and papa escape this place and so we search for my little brother and mama. Where we can be a family again.

Yours Shmuel
