* LosingAShoeintheStruggle: While not a straightforward struggle, Bruno is reluctant to take off his shoes and socks when pretending to be a Jewish boy, as he is horrified by the idea of being barefoot in the mud. However, he soon starts to enjoy it. This is only in the book, as in the film, Shmuel is always wearing shoes too, so there is no evidence that the Jewish boys would be barefoot.

''The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas'' is a book by John Boyne about a young boy of nine named Bruno, who loved to play with his friends and go to school, among other fun things to do in Germany in the 1940s. Yeah, ''[[WorldWarII those]]'' [[UsefulNotes/NaziGermany 1940s]]. That is, until his father's job forces his family to move to Poland, particularly to an odd camp called "[[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything Out With]]", which consists of a small house with an odd fence beside it. His older sister, Gretel, informs him that it will only be 'for the foreseeable future", which she figures to be about two weeks.

* ArtisticLicenseHistory: The Auschwitz complex actually had two major camps - one extermination, one concentration/work [[note]] for processing the arrivals at the extermination camp and manning the I.G. Farben synthetic rubber & petroleum plants in the town. Both camps were built by the concentration camp workforce [[/note]]. There was only one series of experimental gassings (of Soviet POW) in the concentration camp, after which the test-chamber was re-purposed and all incoming prisoners were handled at the extermination camp.

** The movie is not any better, as it has been modified such that [[spoiler:Bruno's parents do realize their son is missing and may be at the concentration camp. The father runs into the camp only to find that one of the gas chambers has already begun working. The mother finds Bruno's clothes outside the camp and completely breaks down in tears.]]

* RealityIsUnrealistic: Some reviewers of the film and book expressed disbelief that Shmuel would still be alive at the camp, saying that Nazis would gas those who couldn't work first. While many tens of thousands were processed by the extermination camp, the concentration/work camp part of the complex really did keep some around. [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Boy_in_the_Striped_Pyjamas_(film)#Reception 600-700 boys around the ages of eight were registered to be alive at that part of the camp during 1944-45]].
