The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas

Factual error: At the end we see a soldier replacing the canister that the Zyklon B is kept in. However, he is not wearing an SS badge as all SS soldiers did. Zyklon B was only handled by members of the SS, as no other unit had authorisation to carry the sensitive stuff.

Continuity mistake: When Pavel picks up the tire from the outhouse, it is a thin tyre with vertical lines, when Bruno is swinging on the tyre a few shots later, it is a thick tyre with lines both vertical and horizontal.

Factual error: At the very start we see the Swastika flags hanging and they appear to be made of lightweight material. However, they were always made of heavier wool.

Trivia: In the scenes inside the camp, the boys were both meant to be barefoot. However the actor who played Bruno's parents vetoed it, and thus the boys were allowed to wear shoes.
