Transcript of The Book Thief

The Book Thief

by Markus Zusak


by Rudyard Kipling

Mrs. Whitaker
English 8

Liesel's foster family, the Huberman's, are hiding a young, innocent, Jewish man in their basement.

As Liesel's understanding of Hitler deepens, so does her hatred towards him.

'If' by Rudyard Kipling
Hatred & Hiding
It is easier to HATE than to forgive, yet Liesel is drawn to the Mayor's wife. The very woman who could end Liesel's life-yet saves Liesel's life with her books. Hating is not the answer.
Liesel is the 'Book Thief'. Her first theft is
The Grave Diggers Handbook
, which is found during her little brother's funeral.

To show support for Hitler, citizens burn books on Hitler's birthday. After learning to read and understanding why Hitler wanted books burned, Liesel is determined to save any books she can.
Liesel spends much of her time waiting to feel safe, waiting to learn to read, waiting for mother to return. Despite the challenges, this virtue eventually saves her.
Hitler's propaganda spews hatred for many-especially Jews. Protecting Max, loving him for who he is, not what Hitler says he is-that is truth.
Liesel Meminger: 10-year-old

Hans and Rosa Huberman: Liesel's foster parents

Max: 22 year-old Jewish man hiding in Huberman's basement

Rudy: Liesel's friend
Molching, German

1939-World War II
"If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise,
Hide and be WISE. Showing
strength draws attention.
