The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas: Book Review


By far the most disgusting, cruel, and inhumane that has happened in history. It makes me feel sick. The way we used to treat humans of our own as if they were dust lying around on someone’s shiny new shoe or flies on someone’s plate of food. Practically spitting out of their mouth in utter disgust when saying “jew.”

And..why, may I ask?

Because they were not “them.” They were not the blue-eyed, pureblood germans. Oh, and if they are not then what shall we do? I’ve got an idea – put them in rooms with poisonous gas and let them suffocate so much they die in less than 15 minutes. The topic of the holocaust is never-ending. It’s one of those things at which you’re so emotional/ angry at that you won’t be able to stop talking about it.

It’s never to late to be what you might have been.

-George Eliot

Animals are like humans. They deserve a life like ours.They don’t need a house, a laptop, a phone. They just like to live in the wild. Eat fruits, sleep on grass. Like Gorillas, they swing from one tree to another. They’re so in-tune with nature. They are not meant to be sitting in one room and watching TV. They’re more active than we are. Living in a human world is not for them. So why do humans need to capture them and make them perform in a circus (or something similar)? Entertainment? Do we not have so many other means to entertain ourselves?
