Bruno had been living in Out-With for two weeks now. He still remembered his best friends Karl, Daniel and Martin. But, as time without them grew longer, his memories of them began to fade.
“I can’t believe we had to leave Berlin” he muttered to himself. He couldn’t play with Gretel because after all she was a ‘hopeless case’. Suddenly, Bruno was called to the living room by Mother with a strict voice. “My dear Bruno, it truly hurts me to have to tell you this.” she said in a frustrated manner. “ Your friend Martin, he-he passed away a few hours ago” she handed him a letter. “When did it arrive” he said trying not to meltdown into tears.
