Setting Of The Book Thief
What is the setting of the story time or place? How does this add meaning to the story?
Munich is the capital and largest city of the German state of Bavaria. It is located on the River Isar north of the Bavarian Alps. Munich is the third largest city in Germany, after Berlin and Hamburg. About 1.47 million people live within the city limits.
The book starts on a train in January 1939 travelling to the fictional town of Molching, Germany. The rest of the setting pays attention to the actual historical events in Germany at the time it is set, which is during World War II. The setting of the story in this fictional town is in the Hubermann Household. This becomes Liesel's new home, Hans and Rosa become her foster parents. The war plays a major role in the novel, having first ripped Liesel's family apart then brings her together with the Hubermanns, Rudy, and Max. It is an interesting point of view of World War II because it is told by Death but through the eyes of a child.
