Synopsis

Based on John Boyne's acclaimed children's novel, this moving, educational and necessarily upsetting drama tells the story of the Holocaust through the eyes of two young boys - one the son of a Nazi, the other a Jewish child imprisoned in a concentration camp. Bruno is the eight-year-old son of a German commandant and is told that the barbed-wire enclosed camp next to his house is a farm, and its striped-uniform wearing prisoners merely workers. Bruno's eyes are gradually opened to the true horror of what's going on around him, however, when he befriends a boy his own age from the other side of the fence.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
