Did anyone else see "The Boy in the Striped Pajamas?"

If so, did it make you cry? I found it entirely depressing.

  • I didn't cry. What was the ending? Think about it. Nazi Germany. He lived near a death camp. He snuck in to help his little friend. He dressed in a prisoner's outfit (striped pajamas) to not get caught by the guards....you see where this is going?

  • Had it been true (the boy actually sneaking in and going into the gas chamber inadvertantly) I would have been more horrified but I found it difficult to believe. That said, I avoided Dachau when in Europe last because I didn't think I could handle walking through the concentration camp. The Halocaust has no words to describe the evil endured. History is repeating itself in Darfur and other African nations and again, nothing is done. What kind of a world do we live in?

  • That was one of those rare movies where the movie was better than the book.

  • It was a great movie. I did cry.
    I think these are great movies and more people should see what can happen when you think the government will not do that? Because it did happen and it can happen again. The Jewish people show us that we need to fight back.

  • The Boy With the Green Hair is a great (old) movie for kids on prejudice.
