MIDDLE In the middle of the story the family moves to their new 3-storey lifeless- looking house in Auschwitz (‘Out-With’). Bruno’s first impression of the new house was that his eyes opened wide and his mouth made an shape of an ‘’O’’ and his arms stretched out at his sides once again. Bruno feels the house is devoid of any real joy and laughter. He went to his room to unpack and through his window he sees the concentration camp and it inhabitants. Bruno was curious why they were all the same thing grey striped pajamas and gloomy.
