The animal is not an appropriate name to call the leaders of Nazi's party. Leaders of Nazi's party are creatures who are much more worst than an animal, they should be called brainwashed monsters. Hans Hubermann is a tall, calm, old looking men with silver eyes. In the Makus Zusak novel The book thief, there are many interesting characters, but no one is like Hans Hubermann who possesses the qualities of kind, and loyal. Back in the Nazi's period kindness was not essay thing to be found in people's heart.
People Who Helped in Hidden Ways Topic: Germans that helped Jews during World War II Working thesis statement: Helping Jews was very dangerous in Nazi Germany during World War Two because of Hitler’s bigoted nationalism, yet numerous Germans civilians and soldiers assisted a Jew in some way during the time of war.

Throughout the novel,The Book Thief, Liesel Meminger had many different relationships with many different people. The relationship I will be referring to is Liesel’s relationship with Rudy Steiner. Liesel’s relationship with Rudy grew from two complete strangers to a relationship similar to best friends or siblings in which they could trust each other greatly. This relationship grew due to the fact that they spent a lot of time together, whether it be in their homes or outside, they were frequently together.
By using the color motif, Markus Zusak demonstrates that everyone in The Book Thief needs an escape, whether it’d be color itself or a moment that sheds their life with color and pure ecstasy. Throughout the book, it is seen that Zusak uses a lot of color motifs or color imagery, describing situations vividly or a characters actions to the point that you can see it right in front of you. From what the book has shown, color not only describes the actions of the characters, but it describes their own versions of an escape. Whether it was shown from the vivid description of these character’s actions, the demonstration of them working to escape their pain, or showing the color and beauty of the world around the characters, it is commonly seen that color has left a major impact on how the story occurs and how these characters develop.
Rosa Hubermann, a dynamic character in The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, who unexpectedly displays great courage. To begin, Rosa takes Max in and treats him equivalent to a son. However, Rosa is not just taking in any normal person, she is taking in a Jew in the time of Nazi Germany. To describe the feeling Death says, "Imagine smiling after a slap in the face. Then think of doing it twenty-four hours a day.
People with lack of acceptance have differences in personalities, experiences, and behaviors. There are many major similarities and differences concerning the characters in “Flowers for Algernon” by Daniel Keys and The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. Even though The Book Thief was based on a little girl named Liesel, another character, Max, in the book experiences a lack of acceptance. The setting of The Book Thief is during World War II, when Jews were being persecuted for their religion and beliefs. Max has a worldly personality, so he is knowledgeable of the series of events happening around him.
Oskar Schindler is a good person, but only to a certain extent. Through the Jews point of view he was a safe haven, but to his wife he was a untrustworthy man. He gave the jews a chance to stay alive, he became friends with his accountant but secretly. He also gave the Jews water when they were in the cars, he accepted the gifts on his birthday, such as the cake from the two girls and returned them with a kiss. Oskar Schindler gave Jews extra food, and extra care.
‘The book thief had struck for the first time, it is the beginning of an illustrious career’. Liesel’s book stealing in my mind does not qualify as criminality. But the failure/inability to apologize for stealing items, this is the greatest crime. Markus Zusak attends to show us the humanity in everyone, he does this by elaborating on words and sentences creating the theme criminality. Markus successfully uncovers the theme criminality creating a profound effect on the reader while also linking to modern day society.
Humanity takes form in many different ways throughout o society. Many argues that society does not have any humanity, but they are very mistaken. Humanity is very common in society people just show it in different ways this can go from helping someone to just being there for one another. Humanity can be shown through safety,hope, and reuniting people.
It isn’t easy for a Jew to live in Nazi Germany. Especially if you lost your whole family. I now live in basement belonging to Liesel and her foster parents. It is unfair, if you ask me. Jews have to live in the basement and eat leftovers if lucky, while Germans live in luxurious mansions and eat their full and even more.
Without a theme, a story is just a story with little meaning. To test whether a theme is worthy, the reader should ask whether it teaches a lesson, whether it's revealed through characters and whether it applies to the entire work. Several themes in the novel Night by Elie Wiesel and in the movie The Book Thief pass this test. In Night, Elie writes a memoir about how he and his family are sent to Aushwits, a concentration camp, for being Jewish during the holocaust.
‘The Book Thief’ (2013) is a film adapted from a novel written in 2005 by Markus Zusak focussed on a ten year old girl, living in Germany during World War II, the Nazi era, Liesel Meminger. The death of Liesel’s brother left her with foster parents Hans and Rosa Hubermann. Most of the characters in ‘The Book Thief’ are opposed to the Nazi regime such as Liesel, and Max Vandenburg, who is a Jew that the Hubermanns’ are hiding in their basement. Franz Deutscher on the other hand, is the face of the Nazis as he fully supports the regime. These three characters are vital to the film because it portrays different views on the war.
Death, the last figure we see before our grasp on reality slips for the last time, a constant reminder of our mortality. Death is also the first figure we are introduced to and the narrator of The Book Thief. By use of his monologue we learn of his fascination with colors as an escape from his never ending duties as a soul collector. This insight into Death's personality assures us that he is not an emotionless character, but that rather then succumbing to the sad and sometime horrific scenes of his victims he must find ways of enduring them. Through Deaths travels we're brought to another of his fascinations, a small girl and the main protagonist of the story, Liesel Meminger.
