It is a film about courage in adversity and friendship. The audience is engaged the entire film and as the film is from the perspective of a German family, who are normally considered the enemy in films about World War II, it is interesting to see the war from their perspective. The film brought up the topic of man’s inhumanity and what we are willing to do to each other if given the chance. Through the personal and empathetic connections we make with the characters, we (the audience) reflect on actions (although less major than dropping bombs) even if minor which have hurt or effected people negatively. I would recommend this film to people of all ages who have felt out of place at some point in their lives when they have moved to a new environment and people who would like to look at war and death from a different
The Humor of making fun of each other with derogatory language is demonstrating that they are best friends having fun and being kids.Later on when Liesel ran to Max as he was in line walking to the concentration camp with Liesel trying to get him away, “You have to let go of me, Liesel.’ He even tried to push her away but the girl was too strong.” This shows the friendship between Liesel and Max and how Liesel is afraid of losing him to the concentration camp and it uses emotive language to shows the friendship and love between them. After Viktor throws the book in the river, Rudy goes after the book to retrieve it.“How about a kiss Saumensch?” Rudy asks Liesel once again after he has retrieved the book….He’d have been glad to witness her kissing his dusty bomb-hit lips.” The friendship is displayed in the quote with foreshadowing of the loss of Rudy in the future but since they are best friends she losing him made her heartbreak. Even when having friends losing them is part of life and it is what makes up human and Liesel found that out for

This periscope shows the extreme passion these two TB infected teenagers had for each other, while also conveying his numbed sadness for the loss of this amazing person that had changed him forever. There is also a hidden tone in the work, though: pessimistic views and hopeful views. Of the two, Lane is the hopeful half who made remarks such as, “There’s a difference between missing someone and mourning them. And I hold out hope that one day I will no longer mourn Sadie, that I will simply remember her, and smile sadly, and then I’ll keep
In a clip from the movie The Book Thief, a certain scene went on with profound evidence, “A German officer came up to a Jewish family’s home, and he started to bang on the door, the Jewish family opened the door and the German officer said, “I can only take one.” The Jewish boy named Max was sent by his mother and he grabbed the passport and ran” (The Book Thief). In the book Diary of Anne Frank it states, “For the first time there were widespread expressions of guilt and shame for what Germans had done to the Jews only a few years before” (Frank). The website United States Holocaust Memorial Museum it shows, “In late 1940 and early 1941, just months before the Germans initiated the mass murder of Jews in the Soviet Union, some 2,100 Polish Jews found temporary safe haven in Lithuania. Few of these refugees could have reached permanent safety without the tireless efforts of many individuals” (USHMM). This explains that some Germans soldiers put their life on the way to go against Hitler to save people’s lives.
Empathy is a trait that allows someone to put themselves in the perspective of another person, a trait that allows being a good friend and a true human. Sophie’s secret is life-threatening if anyone is to find out. “I simply hit out and did my furious best. My intention was to gain a few minutes for Sophie” (Wyndham, 44) When another boy, Alan, almost finds out that Sophie has an abnormality, David physically attacks him because he understands how important it is to Sophie that nobody knows. Not only does he feel so much empathy that he attacked someone but is also there for her emotionally.
As Liesel Meminger manages to cripple the hearts of many and patch them over and over again. It makes them weep for the monsters that human beings can be, but rather delight in how wonderful we are capable of being. With that in mind, the power of words was, in fact, pivotal in the contribution to the survival and endurance of the major characters in the novel. Through the power of words, you can deceive and alter the perception of life and creation on others. In deduction, Mark Zusak effectively uses the power of words to demonstrate how crucial it was to the survival and growth of major characters, he also expresses this through numerous perspectives.

Is it not surprising how lust and love are so much related to each other yet particularly unique? Both seem to find their way into sentimental connections in the poems Porphyrias Lover and Adam and Eve it is passed on precisely how perilous both can be and in certain cases even deadly. Both poems sketch deep passion and disappointment in men when it comes to the women they have chosen. Both writers give you this sense of passion along with inhuman like behavior; the only difference is one man had a conscience. Porphriyas lover is the ideal case of how love can go wrong and how greatly it can overcome one 's thoughts and emotions.
Never Ending Darkness The Holocaust was is one of the most gruesome events to take place in history. In the novel, Night by Elie Wiesel readers obtain a first hand experience of all the unexplainable horrors of the Holocaust. Night begins at the end of WWII and gives a frightening account of the Nazi death camps. This memoir is a powerful read showing the internal struggles a young teenage boy goes through. I thought this was a very notable novel because Night is written by a concentration camp survivor so it is far more credible.
