Story intro

Jojo Betzler is a ten year old boy in Nazi Germany during the second world war. He is extremely patriotic and loves his country and loves the fuhrer - he talks to his imaginary friend Adolf Hitler who in his mind he sees as his best friend and biggest cheerleader. He and his best friend Yorki go to a training camp for Hitler youth run by Captain Klezendorf, his second-in-command Finkel, and Fraulein Rahm. Jojo wants to be the best Nazi at camp, but one day some of the older boys decide to test him on his commitment by commanding him to kill a rabbit. Jojo can't do it, and so the boys start chanting "Jojo Rabbit", and Jojo runs away. Hitler tells him that rabbits have their good qualities, and to go back to them and prove them wrong. As Klezendorf shows the youth how to toss an explosive, Jojo triumphantly takes the explosive and throws it into a tree. It bounces back and lands directly in front of Jojo, exploding. Jojo is rushed to the hospital - when he awakes, he has scars on his face and a limp in one of his legs. His mother, Rosie, takes him home to recuperate. She takes him to Klezendorf's office, where he and the rest of his crew, including Finkel, who is his secret lover, have been demoted for the grenade incident. She knees him and tells him to make Jojo feel included like all the other boys even though technically, Jojo can't serve with the Hitler youth militia due to his injuries. When he goes home, he searches around his house and finds a secret compartment and discovers Elsa Korr, a teenage Jewish girl hiding inside. Jojo screams and wants to tell someone or kill her, but she overpowers him. She tells him if he tells his mother she will kill him, and if he tells anyone else the Gestapo will kill his mother for hiding her. In the town square, Jojo and his mother see the hanging bodies of victims of the Gestapo. Jojo asks what they did, and Rosie says "what they could".
