Once in a while a movie comes along that you just know, after watching it, you will not soon forget it.
Such was the case tonight after viewing a very soul stirring movie called "The Boy In The Striped Pajamas". The last movie I watched concerning the Holocaust was Corrie Ten Boom's "The Hiding Place". I think it was released about 1989 and I still remember dialog from that movie after all these many years! And for me, that is saying something!
It's about two young boys who befriend each other. There is just one "small" fact that complicates their friendship. One boy's father is a high ranking official in Hitler's army, who oversees a German concentration camp for Jews. The other boy is a prisoner of war, along with his father, in the same concentration camp.
Through a barbed wire fence their friendship is developed.
This movie will greatly influence how you may view war. And will especially give you a glimpse of seeing war through a child's eyes.
It's a difficult subject, but a movie well worth seeing.
I've been to New York city many times now and have never visited the Holocaust Museum. It has officially made my "Bucket List" after seeing this movie.
***A time to love and a time to hate; a time of war and a time of peace. Ecclesiastes 3:8
Looking forward to that time when all there will be is love and peace...come quickly Lord Jesus!
