The Boy In The Striped Pajamas

This movie looks promising:



There is something about movies that have as the subject the holocaust. I think that we ought to honor the memory of such terrible acts and as remind ourselves of the evil that man is capable of. To remember that it was "normal" men and women like ourselves who were blinded and perpetrated such atrocities. It took thousands of people to do what the Nazi's did. And each one of them had a story and choices to make. Hopefully, like Shindler's List, this movie will examine the lives of those involved. We must never forget. For a full review of the movie, check out ysmarko.

We saw a commercial for this movie on tv tonight. I didn't catch much of it, but Sarah commented that she had read the book the movie is based on to her students.

I admit when I saw your blog title I thought this was going to be a post about Riker.

We are always reading books aloud in my classroom. Last fall (around Nov. 11) we read the book called "The Boy in the Striped Pyjams". It was an amazing book, told from a unique perspective. I can only hope that his movie will be as moving and the book is!
