234 Words1 Page

Another example of the beauty of humanity can be seen in Hans Hubermann's character. Throughout the novel Hans is a very easygoing and thoughtful man who has a tendency to put others before himself. Wherever he is, he is always trying to help others. For example when Hans goes around painting windows black to prepare for the air raids he does not charge his customers a certain amount of money. He only charges however much they can give. In some cases he accepts a few cigarettes in exchange for his services and other times he gets nothing. Also in the novel, Hans tries to give a piece of bread to a dying Jew. By doing this he is putting himself in a very vulnerable position just to help a person who he does not know.
