The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas by John Boyne

A story of innocence existing within the most dreadful evil, this is
the fictional tale of two young boys caught up in terrible historical
events. With consummate skill and no little courage John Boyne
takes on the daunting challenge of the Holocaust novel, producing
in the process, an exemplar of the genre like none that has gone
before. Subtle,controlled, and laden with dramatic irony this is a
novel which, like The Diary of Anne Frank, is destined to endure.
