The Painted Bird describes the world as seen by a young boy, "considered a Gypsy or Jewish stray," who wanders about small towns scattered around Central or Eastern Europe during World War II. Due to his dark eyes and skin it is suspected that he is a gypsy or Jew and must deal with the constant torment from the other villagers.
