1. How is Lieutenant Kotler presented in the novel and to what purpose?Comment on • -what Kotler's words and action reveal about him as a character and about 'Outwith' • -how you, as a reader, respond to Kotler’s attitude Include: Physical descriptions, words and actions, Kotler’s opinions, and say why Kotler is important in this book. The character of the Lieutenant Kotler is presented in this novel as a young soldier who we met when Bruno was about to move to Out-With. From my point of view, Kotler is the character that make us be aware of the Nazi cruelty . Kotler´s physical descriptions are a strong and blondy young man who wears an spotless uniform and a black boots always sparkled with polish. Also that he always takes with him lot of perfume. It was like he was one of the soldiers that Bruno´s father really liked. But Bruno doesn.t like Kotler at all because he has an attitude and he calls him “little man” beacause Bruno is small. He makes Bruno feel cold. Like at one part of the book Bruno asked Kotler a favour for a spare tyre to make a swing. Bruno´s sister, Gretel, liked kotler so she flirterd with him a lot. So Gretel was with Kotler in the garden and when Bruno asked the favour from Kotler was very sarcastic and said and he carries it on him. Kotler is also a mean man. He likes to hurt the people like Pavel. He accidentally spilled wine over his lap and he got very mad and he hurt him. He also shot a dog for barking and bite Shmuel up when he was in the As a matter of fact. it is a racist ideology that builds on a fundamental idea of the superiority of the Aryan (German) race. that builds more on criticism than suggestions for improvement. and for this reason the Lieutenant is transferred away from Out-With. I think Kotler and the Holocaust simbolize the irrational and therefore incomprenhesible period of human history. . and it is. He is only 19 years old an he is flirting with Brunos´s mother. I think she´s got an affair with him. The Holocaust defeats all comprenhesion. where the Jews (in an absurd combination with communism) are used as an explanation for all kinds of problems. The Nazism. an aggressively nationalistic ideology that puts the nation over the individual. it was madnes devoted to the level of a political system which nobody even today can makes sense of. finally. Kotler represents in his own the ideology of the Nazism and the madness in wich Nazi Germany is involved even not being a pure german because his father was Swiss. and demands that the nation be extended to its “natural” territorial borders.kitchen cleaning the glasses because he thought that the boy had been stealing food. it is an ideology.
