Bruno is insecure about his relationship with his father. His times with father are very formal and lack depth of emotion. Bruno also feels very unsure about his new place in "out-with". He senses something very dark about the camp he sees in the distance. Bruno has a strong inherent value system that transcends the Nazi rhetoric that has been drubbed into him. He gravitates toward kind people like Shmuel and Pavel while being revolted by aggressive people like lieutenant Kotler.
