This is well juxtaposed to his view of his old house, where “sometimes he liked to stand in front of these stalls and close his eyes and breathe in their aromas, feeling his head grow dizzy with the mixed scents of sweetness and life.” The second major change that affected the development of Bruno’s character was the change in his living environment. In Berlin, the city was always busy and especially on Saturday afternoons, Bruno was pushed “from pillar to post” when he was in the market, this being one of the things he remembered and missed about his old life. In Auschwitz, however, his feelings about the place he had to live was that “everything here is horrible…” and “I hate it all. Absolutely everything.” The third major change affecting Bruno’s character in the narrative was when Bruno had to leave most of his social life back at Berlin.

One Sunday afternoon we had nothing to do and so we decided to investigate this matter further. We snuck out of our gate and walked down the street until we were outside his house.
