Striped Pajamas

So last weekend we rented the movie "The Boy in the Striped Pajamas" and I LOVED IT! As it says on the DVD box, its a story about "Lines may divide us, but hope will unite us." It was somewhat depressing (stories about the Holocaust usually are), but there is something I love about these stories of hope and love. I can't wait to go to Europe someday and experience this rich history in person. It truly is a "A Timeless Story of Innocence Lost and Humanity Found." It was one of those movies you feel enriches your life and gets you really thinking about the gift of humanity. The movie is based on the book by John Boyne. I can't wait to read it now! Too bad my stack of "Must Reads" is growing and I'm having a hard time finding time to read.
