Why do you think Bruno's mother says, "I didn't mean-began mother before shaking her head and starting again. 'I wasn't trying to suggest-'"when Maria overhears her comments about the Fury

That is because mother laments that the "Fury" came to dinner. The family's life would change as a result of Bruno's father being sent to Auschwitz. I think saying anything derogatory about Hitler could be punishable by death.
