Two times, two books

In this post, we are going to compare the diary of Anne Frank and The boy in the striped pyjamas’ novel.
The main difference is that Anne Frank was writen under a Jews point of view whereas the other novel, has as the main character a little boy who’s father is a Nazi soldier.

 
Anne Frank was writen while WW2 was taking place. It shows her own experiences about hiding from the Nazis. Anne Frank wrote it between 1942 and 1944 and was first published on 1947.

  


The boy in the striped pyjamas is not a real story, it explains the life of a young boy whose father is a Nazi. It was writen by John Boyne in 2006 and first published in February 2007.

From both novels there’s a film but lots of differences can be seen from the two books. They show the same period of time but with different opinions.


Here you have a webpage of this two books and a little summary of both:

Homes in the 1940s

Homes in that time, were simple and really different from ours. Many children in the 1940s lived in small houses or flats.  There were blocks of flats too, though they were not as tall as the ones we have today. A typical family house had a sitting room and kitchen, with two or three bedrooms upstairs. The peculiarity of this houses was that that toilet or bathroom not always was inside the house, and not all the houses had one of it. Every window had ‘blackout curtains’, which were drawn at night. They were used to protect the family from being seen by the air forces who threw bombs at night.

Here there is a page to know something more about the houses in that time. http://www.bbc.co.uk/schools/primaryhistory/world_war2/wartime_homes/
