Richard Puz once said, “Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.” Throughout The Book Thief, this idea is portrayed through the life of Liesel, a young German girl living during the reign of Hitler.

In the novel, Liesel loses her biological family, her Jewish friend Max, and the people of Himmel Street. All the loss has left Liesel distraught and their lasting memories help her develop into a well-rounded character.

I identify as a Latina. I have always considered myself as a Latina, but throughout time, I believe that I have assimilated more into a white individual because of the privilege that I hold and because I have lived in the US most of my life.
