When the father is not at work, he is found in the basement, alone, working on his time machine. In his journal, Josh states, “Dad is stuck in the first stage of grief, called denial and isolation” (Austen 13-14).

Actions speak louder than words, and how Hans sheltered Max, Liesel interfered with Jewish parades, and Rudy gave a teddy bear to a dying soldier are all examples of people overcoming propaganda. Hans Hubermann was provided with every opportunity to cleave to the mold of a perfect Nazi, to fall in like his son, but he chose to hide a Jew, risking everything. Despite that he was just as swamped in propaganda as the rest of the country, “but if nothing else, he was a man who appreciated fairness. A Jew had once saved his life and he couldn’t forget that”, because to him, that action meant more than all the beautiful lies Hitler could spin (Zusak 180). Not only did he refuse to join the Nazi party, a choice that resulted in him “‘losing customers quicker than… [he could] count’”, but he repainted a Jew’s door after it had been covered in slurs (Zusak 181).
Max went to the Hubermann’s house because Hans, Liesel 's foster father, offered to hide him from the Nazis. When Liesel first saw Max, Hans told her to go back to bed, so she did. As she was lying in bed, she was listening to her family talk to the strange man in her kitchen and was wondering who he was. When Rosa, Liesel’s foster mother, went down and saw Max she burst

In the beginning of the movie when everyone kept on throwing books in the fire, he stood with them because he was to afraid to rebel against the Nazis. Though he may have had some ugly traits, Hans definitely had some beauty. Hans is very trustworthy as shown in the movie as he takes Max in and treats him because of a promise he made a long time ago. He helps Max recover and keeps him safe when the Nazis tried to search

Joey went through Hell, and was almost killed many times. But he stood strong and ended up being back in safety. Albert may have been drafted into the war, but his hope to find Joey was what kept him alive.

There are multiple examples of this throughout the book. One is when after her brother died and her mom dropped her off at Himmel street. Even after those sad events she was still able to find happiness with her foster family(the Hubermans). Another big example that shows this is after the bombing when Max turns out to still be alive. Even after her friends and parents died Max turned out to still be alive.
