“Father laughed, which upset Bruno even more; there was nothing that made him more angry than when a grown-up laughed at him for not knowing something, especially when he was trying to find out the answer by asking questions.”

“On most days the young lieutenant looked very smart, striding around in a uniform that appeared to have been ironed while we was wearing it. his black boots always sparkled with polish and his yellow-blond hair was parted at the side and held perfectly in place with something that made all the comb marks stand out in it, like a field that had just been tilled.”

“What exactly was the difference? he wondered to himself. And who decided which people wore the striped pyjamas and which people wore uniforms?”
