      Conflict - Good job! All you have is a few capitalization errors, for example, " The conflict is person vs Society. " You don't have to capitalize society. Also concentration doesn't need to be capitalized.

      Setting - Doesn't the book also take place in Berlin? Add detail about when it took place in Berlin.

      Protagonist - Why is he protagonist? What does he do that is nice?

      Antagonist - What do the Nazis do that is mean, unfair, cruel, brutal, and selfish?

  2. Conflict- Person vs Society

    In my opinion, I thought the conflict in the book " The Boy In The Striped Pajamas " was person vs society. I think this because Bruno's new friend Shumel is a prisoner at a Nazi camp.

    Setting - In the beginning it takes place in Berlin, and the middle-end it takes place in Poland.

    Protagonist - I think the protagonist is Bruno. Bruno is a 9 year old boy who likes to adventure and is the son of a major Nazi soldier. He is really nice by trying to help his new friend find his dad.

    Antagonist - In my opinion the antagonist is the Nazi soldiers. I think this because the Nazi's punish the people of the Jewish religion for no reason!

  4. 1.) Conflict- Person vs. Society
    The conflict is person vs. society because Bruno's father had to move there, but it wasn't in his hands. I think those Nazi soldiers had forced Bruno's family to move out of there home.

    2.)Setting-
    Berlin and Poland.
    The year it took place was around 1943.

    3.)Protagonist- Bruno
    Bruno is a nine year old boy who is the son of a Nazi soldier. He is very curious when it comes to his fathers job. Bruno has an older sister named Gretal.

    4.)Antagonist- Nazis
    I think that the antagonist is the Nazi soldiers. Since they treat Jewish people very unfairly, (persecution).

    I think this because it is the Jewish people vs the Nazi soilders, becuase the Nazi soilders put the Jewish people in the camps and force them to work.

    There are two different places Berlin, Germany and Poland.
    It is during WWII

    Protagonist-
    I think the protagonist of the novel is Bruno becuase he is puting his life in danger to give food to his new friend.

    Antagonist-
    I think the antagonist of the novel is the Nazi soldiers becuase they are putting the Jewish people in concentration camps to work.

    1. I liked your work but I noticed that you spelled a couple of things wrong. I also think that you should join together the two sentences in setting. Overall, I like your post.

      Spelling
      - soilders (soldiers)
      - puting (putting)
